Recommendation 3: A holistic, evidence-based prevention plan

The recommendation

Ambulance Victoria should develop a comprehensive prevention plan targeting discrimination, sexual harassment, bullying, victimisation and other harmful workplace conduct, like incivility, within six months of the publication of Volume II of the final report. At a minimum, the plan should:

  1. address the specific drivers and risk factors identified in this volume of the report
  2. be informed by early and ongoing consultation with the workforce, the relevant unions and professional associations and the Department of Health
  3. integrate and/or align prevention measures with any existing or new diversity and inclusion strategies, including the organisation’s forthcoming Gender Equality Action Plan for the Gender Equality Act 2020 (Vic)
  4. include key accountabilities for leaders and managers and require ongoing monitoring and evaluation and continuous improvement efforts, to be led by the new dedicated division responsible for leading implementation of the Commission’s recommendations (see Recommendation 11).

What we are doing

  • Develop and implement a holistic and evidence-based prevention plan

Where we are up to

  • AV will start work to develop a prevention plan once key staff are recruited.
