E-Learning: Personal Safety & Lone Working Basics

Course Overview

Have you ever made a journey and not quite realised how you got to your destination? Many of us navigate daily life on ‘autopilot’, oblivious to our surroundings, and with little attention to our personal safety.

While we live in a relatively ‘safe region’ of the world, a recent crime survey recorded 11.5 million offences in just one year in England and Wales alone.

One of the biggest threats to personal safety is assuming ‘it’ll never happen to me’ – but just because you haven’t been affected by crime yet, doesn’t mean you won’t ever be.

This course aims to raise awareness of common risks to personal safety and offers strategies that can help you minimise your chances of becoming a victim of crime.
