Incompany training resistance and de-escalation

Not being able to deal with violence at work or aggression in the workplace can lead to problems for staff and you have a legal duty to protect your staff from this. Not getting what they want or just having to wait are just two reasons why people change from calm to aggressive. Dealing with violence and aggression in the workplace becomes a lot easier if you know what to do. Our resistance and de-escalation training course offers you and your employees the knowledge and skills to deal with these situations. We train the police, local authorities and companies, among others, to deal effectively with aggression on the shop floor.


Vendors, brokers, planners, social workers, benefit officers, receptionists and others who have to meet people on a daily basis are particularly vulnerable. Our resistance and de-escalation training includes a number of security measures they can take. The knowledge and confidence gained by participants in this course will help to reduce the anger and aggression they encounter. Dealing with angry or aggressive people is not easy, but knowing what to do and say can prevent injury and improve the relationship with the client.
