Safeguarding in the Workplace: What are the lessons to be learned from cases referred to the Independent Safeguarding Authority?


The Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) was created under the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act (2006) to make independent, well-informed and considered decisions on whether to bar people from working with vulnerable adults and/or children. This research was undertaken to specifically explore: the behaviours demonstrated by the referred individuals that lead to their referral; the circumstances in terms of relationships, culture and policy within which the harm occurred and was reported; and actions taken by the employer leading up to and in response to those behaviours.
