General Safety Training

Personal Safety

The training programme will ensure participants understand how to assess risks of aggression and violence in their working environments by training them to identify behaviour that indicates an escalation towards aggression and take the appropriate measures to avoid and defuse the situation at the earliest opportunity. We do this by providing good practice procedures with risk control measures and strategies to deal with personal safety and confrontational situations in a legal and safe manner.
