Health Services workers in the Dubbo region will join in on a strike action involving 22,000 workers across the state from August 1.
The industrial action, undertaken by the Health Services Union, will be aiming to provoke action on the issue of worker security, according to Melissa Todhunter, a delegate for the Heath Services Union's Ambulance Division.
"The reason that HSU members have taken such drastic action in this is in relation to the significant increase in violence in our workplaces and the government's refusal to properly address the issue," Ms Todhunter said.
"We have had too many physical assaults on hospital staff which has seen them punched, kicked, spat on, threatened with weapons, stabbed and shot."
Ms Todhunter joined other Health Services Union representatives such as national president Gerard Haney, in laying the blame at a lack of government action over the ongoing troubles.
"It is unacceptable that our safety cannot be guaranteed when we get to a supposedly 'safe environment' like Dubbo Base Hospital which is where we transport our patients."
"There is no easy fix to this problem but certainly the first step is to ensure appropriate Security staff numbers and powers for those staff to act, if required, at a bare minimum."
"Paramedics and other workers in the local health system are routinely threatened and assaulted in the course of simply doing their job."
"They have had enough and they want action instead of lip service out of the NSW government."
A NSW Health spokeswoman said the department would seek the assistance of the NSW Industrial Relations Commission to resolve any planned industrial action.
She said there has been an increase in security staff from 974 full-time equivalent staff in 2010 to 1243 in 2018 across NSW.
Union members will be undertaking a variety of different strike actions in order to encourage action across a four hour 'stop-work' period on the day.
"As far as Paramedics are concerned, we are unable to 'stop work' as such so we will be implementing other measures to show our support for our hospital colleagues during their four hour stop work meeting," Ms Todhunter said.
"Paramedics will be wearing high visibility uniforms and will continue to respond as normal to all emergency calls and work, so there will be no impact on our community members during this time."
"We will be reverting back to paper records for each of our patients and withholding debtor details so in essence, we will be providing a free service."
