Personal Safety

Personal safety training is one of the most effective ways of reducing violent and aggressive incidents in the workplace. The Learning Nexus Personal Safety courses are engaging and interactive. They are designed to help employers keep employees safe. The courses, which have been designed with guidance and advice from the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, will particularly help vulnerable workers to avoid risk and work safely.

Lone Working - Hazards and Risks
Many people have jobs where they are required to work alone and without direct supervision. This absence of immediate help or assistance creates significant risk. This course introduces the learner to the potential hazards faced by lone workers. It then considers whose responsibility it is to reduce or remove the risks associated with these hazards and, in overview, how this is done.

Personal Safety in Other People's Homes and Premises
A surprising number of people work in occupations that require them to work on their own either in people’s homes or in other people’s premises. Sadly, each day sees many people in these occupations subject to either verbal or physical violence or aggression. This course looks at why violence and aggression occurs and enables the learner to develop skills aimed at reducing the likelihood of violence and – should it occur – limiting its outcome.
