Why Prevention of Violence Techniques Are Needed In (nearly) Every Service Sector

At Basis Training, our most popular and successful courses are the ones that deal with the prevention and management of violence and aggression (PMVA and MOVA). Our courses were first intended and designed for those in high-risk environments such as for care staff and nurses. However, in every service sector, staff are at risk from aggressive and unpredictable customers. With this in mind, every business in every industry should be looking at PMVA and MOVA as a way of safeguarding their staff and other customers.

Protect staff and customers

Sadly, more and more employees across the industries are confronted by unpredictable customers and unpleasant situations. People can be aggressive, angry, unstable and much worse. Without the right training, staff can feel vulnerable, and other customers may feel unsafe and anxious. Unless a staff member is confident in the best approach to take, they may make the situation worse and can suffer stress and injury as a result.

PMVA for all industries

At Basis Training, we’re glad that other service sectors are looking at the excellent work of healthcare professionals and seeing how they can apply the same techniques in their own industries. We’re thrilled to have been selected as the training provider for a huge international clothing brand. We are currently running our effective and engaging Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression course for their frontline staff across the major European flagship stores.
