UNISON Scotland are undertaking our annual survey on the level of assaults on staff that have occurred over the past year. I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2005 on any statistics or records you hold on assaults on workforce that have occurred in the course of their employment over the last 12 months. This will enable us to assess whether there has been any change in the number of assaults reported and whether the method of collation of such statistics has improved.
Whilst we are primariuly seeking information p on the number of assaults on staff. Any breakdown of that information such as the nature of the assaultthe category of worker ( job title, area of work etc) would also be helpful.
Please see the information requested attached.
