Personal Safety Foundation Level
Learn to Avoid Danger and de-escalate conflict
Our personal safety courses have been specifically designed to enable you to identify potential dangers, avoid those dangers, or, if that is not possible, to de-escalate conflicts, allowing you to remove yourself to a safe area as fast as possible. The course is split between the foundation level and the intermediate levels to allow the core skills to be hard wired.
The Staff Defence Personal Safety Model is registered on the Trade Marks Registry under registration No. UK00003271833.
