Change is a Safety Risk

So this happened in Victoria recently.

Inadequate change management is the cause, they say.

workers … at risk from exposure to traumatic materials, role conflict, high workloads and work demands, poor workplace relationships and inappropriate workplace behaviours.

…allegations of bullying, favouritism and cronyism, verbal abuse, derogatory comments, intimidation, invasions of privacy and perceived threats to future progression.

A number of workers took leave after reporting feelings of anxiety, PTSD, stress, fear and humiliation.
