Building a Safe Environment

Retail employees have to face clients with different behaviours that they may find challenging.

This course will show employees what to do and how to interact with people who are behaving in a way that impacts the people around them – including bystanders – while staying safe.

Develop tools and strategies to assist the person struggling while ensuring the safety of everyone around

Participants will gain an improved understanding of mental health concerns and the impact it may have on people’s behaviour – leading to increased confidence when dealing with challenging behaviour.
