Mechanical Restraint Training Course

The Personal Safety Device & Mechanical Restraint Training Module of the Able Target System provides accredited training in de-escalation and positive handling strategies for dealing with challenging behaviour. Based on the principles of positive behavioural support, pro‐active and responsive strategies and de‐escalation. Our training in the subject of managing difficult behaviours and aggression all follow the Able Target System. The Able Target system is Able Training’s system for managing behaviour of concern, behaviour that challenges, distress, crisis, aggression and violence. It is adaptable to various environments in the health and social care and education settings. It comprises of 5 modules that map across from the three tier strategy process which includes primary strategies, secondary and proactive responsive strategies and tertiary intervention. This module includes higher level physical skills to manage high risk situations.

What does this course cover?

Within some environments, the impact factors related to the individuals at risk may require staff to have a greater skill level in restraint, available to manage violent and dangerous behaviours. This may be necessary when every possibility of managing a situation through either pro-active or non-physical responses have not worked and responsive or reactive strategies including restrictive physical intervention are required. This module expands on the principles of ongoing assessment and dynamic risk assessment from module 1 and brings them over to a higher risk setting where there may be a significant risk of physical aggression and where withdrawal will not eliminate the risk. The advanced safe-holding module of the Able Target System gives staff an understanding of when restraint or safe holding may be appropriate. Tertiary Intervention includes responsive and reactive strategies. Restrictive and non-restrictive physical intervention skills including Personal Safety Device & Mechanical Restraint Training. This Personal Safety Device & Mechanical Restraint Module of the Target System allows staff to practice and train in the basic safe holding techniques covered in module 4 but then escalate their techniques if justified. It ensures staff can recognise the risks related to the techniques and reminds about the principles of dynamic risk assessment and monitoring during any physical intervention.
