Description of what is covered
Day 1 provides learners with the knowledge of the basic working principals of English Law, including the various Health and Safety Sections and associated Regulations, in relation to the use of physical restraint. The unit also covers the risk associated with physical restraint and how to minimise those risks through risk assessment and awareness and compliance with regulations
Day 2 develops the skills and knowledge required to enable learners to safely apply appropriate and effective methods of restraint using primarily non pain compliant methods of control. More restrictive methods of control (pain compliance) can be taught where there is a higher risk environment
