Benefits of De-escalation & OVA Training with Resolution Education
There is significant variation in the challenges different support organisations and staff face on a daily basis, with specific scenarios different workers need to be prepared for. Therefore all of our training is customised to the workplace and team, so that regardless of your organisation’s size, day-to-day operations, and team, you can be sure Resolution Education’s training will be the perfect fit. With their new skills, employees become confident in their ability to de-escalate aggression and deal with violence, creating a significantly safer work environment.
Resolution Education’s support services training helps to reduce the risk of dangerous situations for staff across support industries. The entire organisation becomes a safer place when staff have completed our training and know how to not only protect themselves, aggressors, and others, but how to not cause further harm when an altercation occurs. When your team is aware of their environment, on the same page about de-escalation and OVA techniques, and understands the legal requirements, policies and procedures behind conflict resolution, they can get back to the important role of providing support to clients in their community.
Comprehensive De-escalation & OVA Training for Support Services industries
OVA Training in Support Services
Support workers often work with clients who have different levels of mental and physical capacity. In these scenarios, difficult behaviour can arise, including violent outbursts, and it’s vital for support and NDIS service staff to be prepared. Resolution Education understands the unique situations that support services face, and how important it is for staff to prioritise the safety of themselves, their clients, and the public. Whether employees are working in an office, clinic or hospital, or visiting the homes of clients, there are many steps that can be taken to ensure that risk is limited.
We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe in their workplace, with the confidence to deal with altercations, and the peace of mind to focus on their work. Our training is built around this core value. The entire organisation becomes a safer place when employees have the courage and capability to de-escalate aggressive situations before they happen, deal with them when they do, and protect themselves and others from harm.
There are many forms an aggressive scenario can take in an occupational space: face-to-face, by telephone or email, in an office, facility, or at onsite visits/in the field. Altercations can also be either verbal or physical, and OVA (occupational violence and aggression) and de-escalation skills ensure staff have the necessary toolkit to protect themselves.
