Workforce Development

Support Services for People Affected by Hepatitis

Workforce Development: provides a range of workshops aimed at any workforce or workplace. Workshops are tailored to client needs and may include: transmission and prevention, needle and syringe program enhancement or occupational health and safety issues.

Policy development and/or review: HepatitisWA will conduct a free review of any organisational policies and procedures related to viral hepatitis. It is vital that your policies are reviewed on a regular basis to certify they are up to date with evidence based standards of best practice. This ensures that all staff and clientele have the capacity to live and work safely in an effective manner that reduces the potential mistreatment or discrimination.

For a policy review, please email Matt Armstrong on wdo@hepatitiswa.com.au

Common types of policy review requests include:

  • Management of blood spills in the workplace
  • Management of sharps (discarded needles etc)
  • First aid
  • Staff vaccinations
  • Disclosure and confidentiality
