Workplace safety for schools and tertiary educators

The public nature of education workplaces exposes employees to conflict situations with the potential to cause personal harm, property damage and loss of organisational reputation.

Students, parents, caregivers, relatives and strangers can be onsite in an agitated state and behave in unpredictable or confrontational ways. Our goal is to help you identify risk, develop mitigating policy, deliver relevant employee training, and source appropriate equipment and products.

All our training programmes are based on increasing the participants’ understanding of the causes of conflict and further developing their ability to prevent and defuse various situations.
