Introduction

Those working in the police force, prisons or corrective services are said to be employed in some of the most dangerous workplaces. They are often working in high risk environments and are constantly exposed to injury, illness and even death.

Some of the hazards involved in working in this field are:

  • Violent attacks
  • Exposure to contagious and infectious diseases
  • Exposure to chemical or biological risks
  • Physical injuries due to overexertion
  • Fatigue
  • Psychological stress or trauma

These risks are often higher than in the typical working environment and thus the work health safety procedures and measures are rigorous.
