Factsheet 47 - Prevention of violence to staff in the education sector
Violence in schools and other educational establishments is causing increasing concern. Results from an EU survey in 2000 show that 4 % of employees have been subjected to violence at work (from inside or outside the workplace), and, in addition, 12 % of workers in the education sector reported having been subjected to intimidation. This factsheet provides practical guidance to employers and workers in the education sector on dealing with this issue. Bullying and harassment from work colleagues is not included in this factsheet.
