The training our staff have received has been first class & we now have had our trainers trained by this company & are still continuing a long relationship with them.Dumfries & Galloway NHS Trust
By far the best training course I have ever attended. The trainers were excellent and very patient with anyone that struggled. The techniques were so easy, but very effective and understanding the law has really helped meBelfast Social Security
Who takes our courses?
SBRT Ltd was set up for these people, who at some point in their work, will need to respond appropriately and confidently when confronted with aggression.
Whilst many people are tucked away in their day to day jobs; there are those that are considered to work on the “front-line.” This includes roles such as:
- Residential home workers
- NHS staff
- Retail staff
- Council workers
- Those working with schools and other educational facilities
It is for these workers who come face to face with patients, residents and the general public on a day to day basis, that SBRT Ltd works with.
Reduce workplace absence
The benefit to the employers is that they will have staff that are less likely to be off sick or injured due to a situation at work and of course the general public, patients and residents will feel safe in the knowledge that the staff will know exactly how to deal with situations if they arise.
