Safer Strategies - Safer Services
Here at Safer Handling we do provide Physical Intervention training although our ethos is to avoid having to hold other humans in the first place!
Where physical intervention or even just holding someone whilst they regain control is necessary. Safer Handling supply staff with the necessary knowledge and skills to manage this in the safest way possible.
Following an internationally recognised BTEC programme of properly risk assessed, medically reviewed and easy to recall holds minimises the risks of injury and distress. Delivered to as many staff as you wish over two twilights, as a combined afternoon & twilight or, as a full day - a great team-building activity!
Specialising in bespoke strategies to manage the behaviours of children or vulnerable adults of all ages and of different shapes & sizes, we take into consideration factors such as managing SEN, learning difficulties or those who may have a disability.
We provide in-house and open courses as well as train the trainer courses.
Made of “tough cloth” the Soft Restraint equipment was designed and developed to offer staff superior control of a person where there is a need to safely control & transport a person. Lightweight, uniquely simple, it is a more humane alternative to the other intrusive methods of control and restraint.
We provide a whole range of courses for all business sectors in the Management of Violence and Aggression, which are bespoke and specific to your needs, requirements and service users.
Whether you are looking for Search Procedures, Handcuff training or First Aid courses or to equip your lone workers with the ability to protect themselves, please click the link below for further details or call us to discuss your requirements.
All of our trainers have sector specific training qualifications and experience.
