The general notion of demanding a non-violent workplace is fine. The problem is the framing of it as a genderal issue.

I wonder how women's advocates would like it if all violence was equated with "women's violence against men".

Found this. It might be helpful for those want to address this matter, to cite demonstrating that SA Health has bigger problems: Archived:

'The private operators of the $2.3 billion new Royal Adelaide Hospital could face financial penalties for the substandard delivery of food to patients.

The hospital has been beset by complaints over bland, poor quality and late meal deliveries since it opened its doors to patients last September.
Under the $397 million annual contract struck by the former Labor state government with the hospital consortium Celsus, contractor Spotless has the responsibility for delivering all catering, hospitality, cleaning, laundry and maintenance services to the major tertiary hospital until 2046.

Health Minister Stephen Wade said the Government had received the latest quarterly invoice from Spotless, and a contract administrator was in the process of calculating reductions which could apply to the bill.
Last month, Mr Wade lambasted construction problems at the new RAH, which has been described as the nation's most expensive building.

He said part of the emergency department may have to be rebuilt because rooms are not big enough to treat critically ill and injured patients.

In February, operations were disrupted when a software failure left part of the site temporarily without power.'
