Personal Safety / Breakaway / Self Defence Training

Our half or one day Personal Safety/Breakaway/Self Defence/Lone Worker training is designed to give your staff the knowledge and confidence to protect themselves when faced with a potentially violent situation. We ensure delegates understand that physical intervention is always a last resort and that they use the minimum force possible to deal with the situation. We reassure delegates that size and strength isn’t important but that the techniques taught are. All techniques are effective and risk assessed ensuring you meet your legal responsibilities as an employer. The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 states:

(2)Without prejudice to the generality of an employer’s duty under the preceding subsection, the matters to which that duty extends include in particular—

(c)the provision of such information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of his employees;

The techniques taught are all approved.
