Soft Restraint Kit Training
The Soft Restraint equipment is not issued or sold without certified training. This has been a key issue with the nationally and internationally established credibility with the device.
The training programme is tailored to ensure it is “profession specific” and based on the needs and requirements of your staff and service users. We provide both end-user and train the trainer courses.
The aim of this course is to instruct participants in the underpinning legal knowledge and the working principles of how to use Soft Restraint equipment safely.
1. Identify the Component Parts of the Soft Restraint.
2. Identify the Risks Associated with the use of the Soft Restraint.
3. Understand the Health & Safety implications with regards to the use of the Soft Restraint
4. Understand the Law in relation to the Soft Restraint as a Use of Force option.
5. Apply and Remove the Soft Restraint in a Safe and Effective Manner.
Train the Trainer Open Courses
We have now reintroduced face to face training in line with government guidelines and Health and Safety regulations. Below you will find dates of our open courses. Alternatively, we can come to your organisation to train your own staff.
Part of your training is now be provided as an online course to minimise the amount of face to face time.
There will be concerns no doubt about staff being together all at once in one room during the session we deliver face to face. One very popular option now are back to back sessions, consecutive sessions throughout the training day is a healthy way to mitigate the risks.
Class sizes are dictated by the amount of room you have, we are happy to deliver training outside where possible although well ventilated hall or training room.
We will adhere to government guidelines in place at the time of the training. We can have the least amount of contact between trainers and delegates by utilising our instructional clips on a screen and having them working together in their usual “bubbles” where possible, which forms the basis of our risk assessed framework for training delivery.
Further mitigation may be used where appropriate such as testing and recording core temperatures on arrival (you may already have this in place) through the wearing of PPE and clips of the techniques being demonstrated sent to each delegate's phone or device for them to work from in groups.
If you wish to discuss this in more detail please get in touch.
Details of the online courses we are offering to both individuals and organisations can be found in our online shop here.
