Here's The Problem ...

Currently there are trainers, managers and inspectors in various industry sectors, including: healthcare, care, education, door supervision, security and close protection, who are either expected to train, manage, provide guidance on, investigate and even discipline staff who use physical force in the workplace. 

Yet a very high percentage of these people have not received any competent training or qualifications in that area. 

This makes them unqualified and not competent to do that.

This leaves the employer, trainer or manager open to a legal challenge if a wrong assumption was made that led to a decision to discipline or terminate someone's employment or to charge them with a crime. That can end up with the employer facing an employment tribunal or being sued; because someone who has had their rights infringed has "an enforceable right to compensation" under the law. 

Worse still, incorrect information, advice, guidance and instruction can lead to an increased risk to staff and the population they serve and if that led to a serious injury or death then the employer and the manager/director responsible can be prosecuted under Health & Safety legislation and in the latter, under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act. 

This Course Is The Solution!

2 x BTEC L3 Unit Certificates With This Course!

This unit forms one of the three Units that make up our BTEC Level 3 Restraint Instructor Award Course is intended for people who need knowledge of the law in relation to the use of force for restraint, defence or arrest.

It is all online so no need to attend any face-to-face training.

UNIT INTRODUCTION

In this course there will be the following sections:

LAW: There will be videos of qualified lawyers and QC's teaching you about the various aspects of law with regards to understanding reasonable force. This is particularly important with regard to providing legally accurate advice, guidance and instruction consistent with current UK statute and common law.  

HEALTH & SAFETY: There is a qualified Health & Safety professional who will be teaching you about how health & safety legislation applies with regards to the use of force as well as understanding of how the various elements of Health and Safety legislations apply when planning and delivering use of force training and in the strategic operational use of force, particularly in areas of safety, health, welfare and negligence. 

MEDICAL & SCIENTIFIC: Learn about the medical implications of restraint and the scientific research into the risk of serious injury and death associated with physical restraint and how to reduce those risks from a properly qualified and competent medical professional and a scientist who has done leading research into restraint positional asphyxia. 

This Training would be ideal for you if you are:

  • Interested in knowing more about the laws that relate to the use of force;
  • Responsible for the management of staff who use physical force in the workplace.
  • ​The person responsible for investigating any use of force incident in the workplace.
  • ​An Inspector responsible for inspecting organisations against their specific regulatory standards. 
  • ​Currently a Restraint Trainer who would like a recognised BTEC Unit Certificate in this area.

What is Competence?

Firstly, if you are someone who is responsible for training or managing staff that uses force in the workplace, or you have to advise, inspect, investigate or train others you are leaving yourself liable to being challenged if you are not competent in what you are expected to do. 

THE HEALTH & SAFETY EXECUTIVE DEFINES A COMPETENT PERSON AS:  

"A competent person is someone who has sufficient training and experience or knowledge and other qualities that allow them to assist you properly. The level of competence required will depend on the complexity of the situation and the particular help you need."

SKIBBS v GIBSON 1964

In the case of Skibs v. Gibson 1964 a competent person was viewed in case law as:

1: Someone who knows what they are looking for,

2: Can recognise it when they see it, and;

3: (Although not mentioned in the case) then knows what to do with it.

Which basically means:

"The possession of sufficient knowledge, experience and skill to enable the person to know what he or she is doing and to be able to carry out a task in the way in which a person competent in the activity would expect it to be done and to have an appreciation of one’s own limitations."

BUTLER v FIFE COAL LTD 1912

In the case of Butler v Fife Coal Ltd. (1912) the following was noted:

Carbon Monoxide had escaped into a coal mine and poisoned one of the miners.
Under the Coal Mines Act 1887, which was in force at the time, it was the duty of the manager and the fireman to withdraw his men until the matter had been investigated.

It was proved that the manager and fireman had no previous experience of carbon monoxide emissions.
The House of Lords held that, although the two men were well and adequately qualified, they lacked the necessary experience and therefore the employer had been negligent in employing them.

IN THAT CASE LORD SHAW OF DUNFERMLINE SAID:

“My Lords, it is extremely difficult to understand how, in such a situation, men could be supposed to be competent who had no knowledge of the dangerous properties of the gases in these pits, or of the peril to human life.”

It is clear therefore, that competence is more than the possession of qualifications. It involves having sufficient and relevant experience as well as a clear understanding of the dangers.

MORE RECENTLY LORD JUSTICE BINGHAM SAID: 
   
“The competent person should command the corpus of knowledge which forms part of the professional equipment of the ordinary member of his profession; the law does not require him to be a paragon, combining the qualities of a polymath and prophet”.

Therefore to ensure that you can evidence competence and avoid any industrial action by a union, being challenged in an industrial tribunal for your lack of competence, your insurance cover becoming invalid, or being sued for damages for an incompetent or illegitimate decision made due to lack of knowledge and understanding, you need to obtain this qualification.

This course will give you that knowledge and competence and also a BTEC Unit Certificate.

Here Are A Summary of The Benefits That You Will Receive When You Decide To Do This Course ... 

Legally Accurate and Defensible You can be safe in the knowledge that the knowledge and information that you will receive is possibly the most legally accurate and defensible of it's kind in the UK today, because you will learn about the law in relation to reasonable force from properly qualified, experienced and competent lawyers (including a Professor of Law and a QC). 
Health & Safety Legislation: Learn about how Health & Safety legislation applies with regards to the use of force as well as an understanding of how the various elements of the Health and Safety At Work Act 1974 (and it statutory Regulations) apply when planning and delivering use of force training and in the strategic operational use of force, particularly in areas of safety, health, welfare and negligence. 

Medical & Scientific: Learn about the medical implications of restraint and the scientific research into the risk of serious injury and death associated with physical restraint and how to reduce those risks from a properly qualified and competent medical professional and a scientist who has done leading research into restraint positional asphyxia.

FREE BONUS - NFPS Level 3 Risk Assessment Award Course Valued at £275 + Vat

This course will take you through everything you need to know and do to produce risk assessments and at the end of the course when you submit your assessment, we will issue you with a Level 3 Risk Assessor Certificate of Competence which is your evidence that you are competent to do risk assessments because you have gone through a structured process of learning and development.

This course is different from any other risk assessment course you will do, because most risk assessment courses focus purely on large manufacturing industry sectors, but not this one. 

In this course we take you through the Manual Handling Regulations and how they apply to physical techniques so if you teach physical restraint (also known as PMVA/MVA/Positive Handling) you can produce a risk assessment around your physical skills, which will also set you apart from your competitors.

There is also a section on ‘Risk Assessing Violence in The Workplace’ so if you work in an industry where there is risk of staff being exposed to violence you will know how to risk assess that to a competent standard (no other risk assessment course does that).

And it comes with a NFPS Level 3 Award Certificate in Risk Assessment.

Why Do This Course With Us? 

This is probably the most competent course of it's kind for this specific subject matter available. You will not get another course like this one anywhere, especially one that comes with a BTEC Level 3 Unit Certificate. 

The benefits of you doing this course is that you will increase your knowledge on the subject of Reasonable Force and become more competent in your understanding of how the various laws apply.

This will enable you to make better informed decisions in how you train, manage or investigate the use of force in your business or professional role. 

What Are The Drawbacks of Not Doing This Course? 

By not doing this course you may not be able to evidence your understanding of this subject.

You may also not know whether what you are saying, advising or recommending is legally correct, which can leave you open to a legal challenge possibly many years down the line. 

How can you state that you are competent and more importantly evidence that fact if challenged to do so by a Freedom of Information request or possibly even in a Court of law?

How will you know if the decisions you are making and the advice, guidance and/or recommendations you are giving are actually reducing the risk when they may in fact be increasing it? That leave you very culpable and liable.

And it's not just you. If you are acting as an employed agent of an organisation you could be creating a liability for your organisation, which if it result in a serious injury and/or death could mean a major fine for your organisation, prosecution under various Acts of Parliament, a possible prison sentence for you and or another senior manager or director and the end of your career, because who would want to employ someone who had made that decision? 

But most importantly, what about the personal cost to the people who will directly and indirectly affected by your lack of competence. The staff who run the risk of being assaulted at work and the service users who may be at increased risk of unnecessary injury or death.

Then there are the indirect costs that brings in terms of increased mental health and staff welfare issues leading to increased rates of absenteeism and staff turn-over, increased time and management costs in trying to resolve these issues, increased litigation and legal fees, legal challenges and industrial tribunals. 

So I have one question for you. Why wouldn't you do this course? 

Your Investment For All This is Only £275 + Vat 

Your investment in this course is only £275 + vat and if you consider that an average lawyer charges between £300 - £500 an hour for their services you can work out for yourself how much this course is actually worth.

Add to that the increased knowledge, understanding and competence that you will gain and it becomes priceless.

So if you are someone who actually does want to become the best, then you need to learn from the best, and you will get no better than the people teaching you on this course.

I have been committed to raising standards in this industry now for almost thirty years and in all that time I have never seen anything that comes anywhere near the quality and value that this course provides. 

I also know something else. Successful people take action when an opportunity is presented to them. They are quick to make decisions and that is why they are successful.

Also, from my studies of NLP all the greats (Bandler, Robbins, etc.,) will tell you this: "If you want to be successful, learn from someone who is at the top of their profession. Study what they study, do what they do. Don't copy them or rip off their materials. Get knowledge and wisdom from them, understand their processes, how they think and act and learn about their beliefs and values. If you do that you can't fail."

This course goes a long way to doing that for you and I hope you'll let me join you on your journey.
