Code: BH/22/1013 Personal Safety & De-escalation Techniques

This course is for Brighton & Hove City Council Housing 

The course aims to increase participants’ confidence in dealing with potentially challenging or volatile situations by equipping them with a range of techniques and strategies that can be used to de-escalate situations. It also focuses on safe working practices when lone working including strategies, control measures and precautions to minimise risk.

Lone Working is an area of work that can cause workers considerable stress and anxiety. This is particularly the case when workers have not considered the potential of the situation in a rational way. This area can also be problematic when workers do not receive appropriate support and/or sufficient training and guidance.

This training aims to provide participants with understanding of what would be considered safe working practices in this context. The course is informed by the policies and procedures of the organisation as well as material from the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, & the HSE.  

The training does not cover the use of physical techniques.
