Safety Training for Educators
“A nationwide epidemic of violent school threats is breeding fear, anxiety and frustration for educators, children and parents,” concludes a recent study by National School Safety and Security Services. Based on the firm’s most recent available data, threats were up by 158% in 2014 over the year before.
And while the vast majority of these threats are anonymous and turn out to be hoaxes, all must be investigated and taken seriously. While nine out of 10 threats may turn out to be unfounded, no school administrator or educator wants to be number 10, given the horrendous consequences that can come as a result.
With this trend in mind, 2 The Rescue has developed a course that can be of specific benefit to school administrators and educators in assessing these threats and ultimately responding to them if one should occur at their facility.
Client specific for adaptation to the specific needs of police and public safety officers, these seminars and scenario-based training from 2 The Rescue promote effective employee skills to improve situational security. They also enhance personnel safety when dealing with agitated or unmanageable individuals or groups in office settings, public forums and street environments. Approved by MCOLES, EMS and the Michigan State Tax Commission, these comprehensive courses explore proven techniques of awareness and recognition that emphasize de-escalation, avoidance over confrontation and how to respond. Courses can be taken individually or in combination.
Some levels of workplace stress are inevitable, but at what point do those stressors put a worker at risk of job burnout? According to the American Institute of Stress (NY), workplace stress costs more than $300 billion each year in health care, missed work and stress reduction. Endless demands, global conference calls and easy access to work emails mean that career burnout happens at an earlier age now than ever before. This must-attend class from 2 The Rescue offers training for employers and employees, providing detailed guidelines and instruction on how to understand and identify the warning signs of chronic stress and avoid burnout entirely—or rekindle your career. This course can be tailored to the specific needs of the organization and individuals.
