Physical Intervention Training


Physical Intervention training makes delegates aware of how challenging behaviour can begin and escalate in the workplace. They will understand their responsibilities for ensuring the safety of all staff and thus will also learn a range of holding and breakaway techniques which they may need to apply should they ever need to intervene in a physically challenging situation.
