Physical intervention, Exit & Breakaway Strategies

The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 provides the framework for legal compliance in terms of Physical intervention, Exit & Breakaway Strategies. The findings in R v Cotswold Geotechnical Holdings (CGH). 2011 EWCA Crim 1337 amplify the requirement to integrate reliable industry practice. TFS exceeds these standards with the inclusion of the body mechanics approach.

Sectors in which TFS have delivered these programmes include:

  • Security
  • Healthcare
  • Education
  • Retail

Courses range from 1 to 3 days, dependant on client requirements, & include the under-pinning legal requirements for the industry involved. For example

  • The Protection of Children Act 1999
  • The Human Rights Act 1998
  • The Health and Safety Offences at Work Act 2008

Individual modules engage with disengagement techniques, exit & breakaway strategies, escorting, seated restraint, controlled takedown and floor restraint.

A BTEC Level II qualification in restraint can be obtained on completion of some of our physical intervention programmes.
