Personal Safety & Lone Worker Training
Leading the way in Personal Safety Training for staff and management, Personal-Safety-Training.com has a team of dedicated, accredited professionals ready and able to provide your staff with the means to protect themselves in the modern environment.
All of the Breakaway & Escape techniques taught are non-interventional. This means that there are no strikes, kicks or punches utilised to disengage. The methodology is designed around principles, rather than techniques, and duty of care is emphasised throughout. In effect this means that the service provider is not expected to remember 4 or 5 techniques for every possible attempt to lay hands on them, rather there are as number of easy to remember principles involving each type of physical attempt to hold or detain.
Violent behaviour is on the increase (UK Government Home Office - Violent Crime Statistics), and this results in a climate of fear. Employees are unable to respond fully to the demands of the position, due to the anticipation of being attacked.
In the past, a great many individuals were trained in some type of self-defence; at school learning boxing or wrestling, at leisure with one of the many martial arts, and in the Armed Services through conscription with unarmed combat techniques being taught. Today, few schools teach any of the combat sports, conscription is no longer an issue, however, there are still many that seek to learn to protect themselves. Competitive combat sports are often chosen, however, the very fact that rules apply to the sport, renders much of the content useless for defending against a determined villain, an angry client who has lost control, or the workplace bully
Work-related violence can have serious consequences for employers and employees. It may have damaging physical and psychological effects and victims can suffer from serious injury, anxiety and stress. The cost to employers can also be high, for example, through low staff morale and high staff turnover.
So What Is The Solution?
Training. In both managing confrontation and the consequences; whether physical or not.
It is the responsibility of both the employer and the employee to take steps to reduce the risks in terms of individual and corporate Personal Safety.
In addition to the basic training P-S-T can provide ongoing training for staff and management, refresher courses, induction training and update courses (for instance to take account of changes in legislation). We can also assist in the preparation and implementation of Personal Risk Management Policies, Risk Assessments, and Training Procedures to provide Personal Safety across the board.
