For people who work in front-line professions where there is a high risk of being exposed to work-place violence by service-users, this is an extremely important question. Whether you work in the care sector, education, front-line private security or other profession – where contact with service-users is likely to involve the need to undertake some form of positive or physical intervention – it’s important to know legal and best practice guidance in order to protect the interests of both staff and service-users alike, especially in terms of reducing the risk of personal injury and the liability of the organisation itself.
Indeed (and certainly in the light of recent changes to best practice guidance and new legislation that directly affects the use and implementation of positive or physical intervention in the work place) it can be extremely difficult, if not confusing, when trying to find the most suitable and appropriate training that will suit your organisation’s legal and ethical requirements.
It therefore helps to know that, with the correct guidance, risk assessment and training provision, your staff can be correctly equipped with the skills and knowledge they need when required to intervene.
N Davies Training is licenced to deliver training in the NFPS system, including some of the most legally-defensible and effective techniques available.
This system is designed to be as simple and effective as possible when dealing with incidents where positive or physical intervention is required. Our positive or physical intervention courses include the following:
- Current and up-to-date knowledge on the law relating to the use of reasonable force and human rights legislation.
- Health and Safety awareness and considerations.
- Understanding how stress affects performance in conflict situations.
- De-escalation and break-away techniques.
- Instruction in simple and straight-forward restraint principles and techniques which can be utilised or adapted according to staff requirements.
Any training provided should be in accordance with the requirements of your organisation and the needs of staff/service-users. N Davies Training can assist in identifying these needs and constructing appropriate training as identified by the risk assessment process.
Training can be provided in-house or otherwise according to requirements. Prices start at £600.00 for up to 10 delegates.
