Additional Corporate Safety Presentations
Although not every employee has contact with customers or clients, personal safety is an important subject for anyone whether on or off the job. ARETE’s corporate safety training is suited for employees who have limited to no contact with customers or clients, but still offers them the opportunity to take responsibility for their safety in their daily life as well as with keeping their workplace secure.
Personal Safety Presentation
For many employees, personal safety can be an emotionally stressful topic and it can be overwhelming to even begin thinking about how to deal with the possibilities. Some may believe that they have no choice in how they might respond to a situation while others are preoccupied with preparing for the “inevitable” crisis. This empowering and humorous presentation provides your employees with a much needed shift in perception regarding risk, along with some basic strategies that can be used to enhance their safety and that of their families.
- Appropriate awareness and assessment
- Pre-planning and trusting intuition
- Safety on the commute (walking or taking transit)
- Parkade safety
- Managing challenging encounters
- Setting assertive boundaries
- Safe disengagement
- Reducing fear while enhancing safety
Personal Safety and Corporate Security
An integral part of any corporate security initiative. Security measures alone do not guarantee a safe or secure workplace. All too often, access control is left to security personnel and systems, and the vital role of all other staff in a facility is overlooked. Involving your employees not only improves security, but also gives them a sense of responsibility and control in maintaining a safe and secure environment. It is essential for staff to be motivated to consider corporate safety training plans and picture themselves responding positively to the possibilities.
Employees will be empowered to become actively involved in your security plans and assume a higher level of personal responsibility for their safety and that of their co-workers.
Principles of awareness, recognition of warning signs, and preventative strategies will be highlighted, as well as:
- Employee buy-in on security protocols; visitor check-in, displaying staff identification
- Increased awareness and confidence to approach those without ID
- Awareness of emergency plans
- Reporting of suspicious people and circumstances
- Enhanced understanding of perceived risk and actual risk
- Personal safety strategies and conceptsti
- Working alone and/or after hours
Staff that have a realistic perception of risk and understand that they have choice in how they respond, tend to express higher levels of job satisfaction and lowered levels of stress.
Protest Conflict Management
Protest-related conflict can be encountered in many work settings, presenting a range of concerns and liabilities, from staff safety and stress to negative publicity and business interruptions. When faced with demonstrations, blockades, office takeovers, or other forms of face-to-face conflict, a cool-headed and objective approach is critical in achieving the most desirable outcome.
Participants learn how to deal with these emotionally-charged situations in the most productive and professional manner possible. This realistic, interactive and entertaining session motivates staff to work effectively as individuals and as a team, while not getting drawn into the ‘us against them’ frame of mind.
