Domestic Abuse and Coercive Control
A 60-90-minute workshop that covers all the elements of Domestic Abuse and Coercive Control.
Coercive Control includes both coercive behaviour and controlling behaviour. It is a form of domestic abuse designed by one individual to abuse and control another. Coercive behaviour is an act or a pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish, or frighten a victim.
In this workshop, we look at changes to the Serious Crime Act making it an offence; the types of coercive control including definitions. We explore in detail abuser behaviour and the range of abuser tactics through several exercises.
We look how to identify when this is happening, the importance of early intervention and what action can be taken
Hollie Guard Workshop
A 60 minute workshop on the use of Hollie Guard detailing how you to set up emergency contacts and the flexible options for work and leisure. The various alert profiles and how they differ. It will demonstrate the main functionality and how these work to help safeguard you including:
The Journey Feature that can help you travel safely. Whenever you use this feature, your emergency contacts are informed about where you’re going so they can check on you in case you’re in trouble.
The Meeting Alarm feature can help you in situations with a risk factor, for example when meeting an estranged partner, going on a blind date or working alone. This feature works in lock screen mode, ideal as a tool for lone workers and for discretion in a handbag or pocket.
The Man Down feature. This allows users performing dangerous tasks to activate an immediate alert as soon as the user becomes motionless.
Lone Working Workshop
A half-day interactive workshop covering the elements facing both employers and employees involved in lone working.
It’s estimated that 6.8 million people in the UK are lone workers equating to 22% of the working population. Employers are responsible for lone worker safety during working hours, whether they are in the office, in a vehicle, or on a home visit. By law, employers have specific responsibilities towards the safety of their employees, as do the employees themselves.
This interactive workshop explores the health and safety issues surrounding lone working. We look at identifying risk, undertaking risk assessments and implementing risk control measures. We examine protection available and what can be put in place to help support and protect staff.
