Personal safety is a part of everyday life both public and private, it's impossible to never encounter hazards but we use our common sense to avoid them. In the workplace personal safety may be more of an issue, as we may be exposed to hazards not common in everyday life.

As an employer, you have an obligation to reduce risks to staff as much as possible. Personal safety training is an effective method of giving employees the knowledge and tools necessary to ensure their safety at work. Whether threats to their safety come from equipment or other people, training gives them an awareness of risks and how to avoid them.

Certain lines of work can put employees at more risk than others - if there is a risk of violence at work, then its important employees know what to do. This is especially a factor in healthcare where patients can sometimes become violent.

What does our personal safety course consist of?

Our personal safety training is delivered over a half day course covering the basics, this can be extended if more ground needs to be covered. It's ideal for new staff or to serve as a refresher for existing staff. The course consists of group work, theory work and personal reflections. All delegates will receive a handout of information covered in training.

Topics covered in training are:

  • Personal safety and key legislation
  • Health and safety and personal safety
  • Strategies to reduce risk and manage personal safety in the community
  • Assessing and managing aggression and violence
  • Risk assessment for lone workers
  • How to handle conflict situations
  • Safe working arrangements
  • Risks of violence
  • Practical personal safety issues

On completing the course, learners will receive a certificate as proof of learning.
