Benefits of De-escalation & OVA Training for the travel industry with Resolution Education

Resolution Education’s training for travel industry workers can significantly reduce the number of violent or verbally aggressive altercations that occur in airports, aeroplanes, buses, and taxis. With our training, employees feel much safer in their everyday roles, knowing that the potential for trauma is greatly reduced. If a dangerous situation does occur, staff will have the best techniques and training to deal with it appropriately, without causing further harm. The entire team can become better at working together, with every individual knowing their role in conflict resolution and being armed with proven systems to boost security.

We use our signature A.D.P. Framework (Awareness, De-escalation, Protection) to effectively teach all members of an organisation. A.D.P. teaches in levels, starting with the basics and gradually building skills, which promotes better learning. It also ensures that staff get the extent of training they need, so those requiring the most complex training can take all levels of training, and those who only need the basics don’t have to.

Our comprehensive training also covers the full timeline of an altercation – from the first warning signs, to dealing with the aftermath legally and to the organisation’s procedures and policies. With a renewed peace of mind in their workplace, staff can get back to providing excellent airline services with confidence.

Comprehensive De-escalation & OVA Training for the Travel Industry

De-escalation & OVA Training in the Travel Industry

The travel industry is a distinct sector that encompasses various modes of transportation including airlines, aeroplanes, buses, and taxis, as well as associated venues like airports. Given the inherent stresses associated with travel, the long duration of journeys, and the extended wait times, conflicts can arise. Abuse is always dangerous, but needs particular care in this industry – whether it’s happening in the air, at security gates, in a car, or at the front desk or ticket counter. Aggression can be over the phone/email or in person, and physical or verbal.

Regardless of how and where it occurs, aggression is something staff should be equipped to deal with. To prevent harm, travel industry employees should know how to de-escalate conflict before it occurs, and know what to do if a serious altercation happens. This helps to keep both staff and the public safe.

At Resolution Education, we strongly believe that everyone deserves to feel safe while working. All workplaces should keep their risk level at a minimum. We provide the best training possible to travel industry staff so they are able to confidently and safely deal with altercations and effectively de-escalate conflict. No matter who or what is causing the problem – whether it’s based on a disagreement, an issue with customer service, a communication barrier, or any other kind of distress or trouble – our comprehensive training teaches employees to appropriately manage aggression.
