Sadly, levels of self-harm and suicide within the UK remain high and are on the increase, with the use of ligatures being the primary option for those wishing to end their lives.
If you have a duty of care towards people who are likely to attempt to end their lives, you have a proactive duty under many pieces of legislation to have steps in place to mitigate these risks, including having staff trained in how to deal with ligature incidents. (i.e. removal of ligature and specifically appropriate first aid training).
For CQC assessed care venues, ligature assessments, emergency procedures and training are always an area that inspectors give particular scrutiny.
Our courses are delivered to help you understand the likely injuries and how to deal with them, how to deal with the situation, which ligature cutter you should invest in, how to use ligature cutters.
These courses are primarily aimed towards;
Drug & Rehabilitation centres,
Residential and daycare centres,
NHS Foundation Trusts
Secondary Schools, Colleges & Universities
