Physical Intervention Training

Control & Restraint

Control and restraint is typically used by staff at Care Homes, Schools and Mental Health units. Both the private and public sector usually opt for their staff to be trained as part of their duty of care as an employer. Breakaway techniques can simply be put into place to ensure that staff are removed from any harm they may face.  Staff are adequately prepared for situations that can lead to injury to themselves and / or others due to others’ actions. The physical intervention training techniques by Salient Training & Consultancy’s team include gross motor skills that can be easily learned, and more importantly retained for when needed. An annual refresher is recommended and documentation to complete staff CPD.

Law and Risk Management

Through case studies we highlight the Duty of Care, Corporate Manslaughter Act and on why physical intervention training is necessary. This module is delivered to head teachers and business sectors. It allows guidance and policy analysis of current scopes of work including emergency restraint belt, soft cuffs and handcuffing protecting both the person being retained and the staff member.

Conflict Management Training

This course raises participant’s understanding of conflict and the contribution they can make to either de-escalate or actions that can escalate an incident. Participants will learn and practice skills to build their confidence, remain calm, take control of a situation and de-escalate customer conflicts through effective problem solving.

Topics covering

  • Background to conflict – triggers, stages and staff safety
  • Recognising rising tensions and anger – flashpoints and non verbal communications (NVC’s)
  • Responding – human natural response to conflict, remaining calm and The swan theory
  • Management – control of situations, handling verbal and physical abuse and problem solving

Staff Support at Court

Post incident report / statement writing and support at court

Salient Training and Consultancy provide post incident report or statement writing along with support for court appearance.

None of us want to think of the consequences when a person in our care sustains injury or worse. Various regulatory bodies and police investigations with staff suspensions/detentions and the organisation being highlighted in the media are just some of the issues faced.

We will help alleviate the stress, advise and assist in post incident reports and statements. Our teams background provides a wealth of experience of dealing with  such incidents, therefore we can provide invaluable and cost effective support to staff and the organisation, prior and during any court hearings.
