Physical Intervention Training

PHYSICAL INTERVENTION TRAINING

 

Learn how to stay safe with an understanding of different types of physical intervention as well as a comprehensive knowledge of the laws and risk factors involved.

PHYSICAL INTERVENTION TRAINING – COURSE OVERVIEW

There may be occasions in the public and private health sectors, education, social care or security settings when it is lawful and necessary for staff to use physical intervention skills (escorting, holding or a more restrictive hold on another person) to protect themselves and others from imminent danger. Physical intervention does however carries risk of injury to staff and the individuals they are dealing with. It therefore important to remember that physical intervention should therefore be a last resort when other responses have failed, or are likely to fail.  We only teach systems of physical intervention that are legally compliant with the latest legislation including sector specific guidelines, e.g. education, health, care of the elderly, vulnerable adults or children, to ensure your staff can provide the highest of standards and a duty of care.
