Depending on the risks faced in the job this can involve anything from avoidance and disengagement skills through to rescue, escorting and holding skills. This course examines how staff can reduce the risks of assault through non physical measures and avoid assault through your positioning and approach. You will then learn how to disengage from the most common types of assault you can face in in role. This can extend to coming to the aid of another person and non restrictive guiding skills.
