Benefits of De-escalation, Personal Safety & OVA Training with Resolution Education

Resolution Education’s training for government and council workers reduces the risk of violent outbursts from the public and lowers the number of altercations your team may have to face. This enables staff to focus on their primary task: providing an exceptional service to the wider community.

At Resolution Education, we ensure training is hands-on, with multiple role-playing scenarios based on your organisation’s needs, and training designed specifically for your staff and facility (considering internal policies and procedures).

Comprehensive De-escalation & OVA Training for Council & Government Departments

De-escalation Training in Government

Resolution Education has extensive experience in the development and delivery of customised De-escalation and Personal Safety Training within council and government departments. No matter the function or size of the department, we have a training program to fit.

Our goal is to provide council and government employees with lifelong skills, giving them the courage, confidence and capability to de-escalate aggressive situations and protect themselves. Occupational aggression, be it physical or verbal, has become a global problem across industry sectors. Difficult situations can occur in various settings within a working environment. This can be face-to-face, by telephone or email, and can occur in the office, or during onsite visits/in the field. De-escalation skills ensure staff have the necessary toolkit to protect themselves.

Resolution Education’s belief, which underpins our training system, is that every employee has the right to feel safe in the workplace, with the skills to mitigate aggressive situations. We train personnel at all levels, from CEOs to junior staff members. Our training is designed to assist each role and organisational level specifically, with tailored education relevant to and practical for your day-to-day operations.

All trainees learn to reduce incidents before they happen, as well as de-escalate situations and prioritise resolution (minimising risk of physical incidents). Face-to-face sessions are hands-on, with staff role-playing scenarios to best learn techniques in managing volatile situations.
