In Australia domestic violence is the number one non-disease related cause of disability, injury and death for women aged between 15 and 44 years.

As we spend so much time at work employers and colleagues are uniquely positioned to recognise the signs of domestic violence.

And we need to ask ‘Are you ok?’

While employers are not there to solve domestic violence, early recognition and intervention together with an open-door policy can help employees in the right direction.
