Personal Safety Training
Personal Safety is the freedom from risk, danger or harm caused by the behaviour of others. Personal Safety Training Courses help delegates to anticipate risks to their personal safety and hence plan to avoid, reduce or manage those risks and is imperative for any organisation wishing to reduce workplace violence. Our courses and talks are valuable for all staff who may from time to time work with members of the public e.g. interviewing, home visits, travel, outreach work, lone working.. All our courses will be tailored to suit your requirements and budgets.
