The Importance of Personal Safety Training

Personal safety is a person’s right to go about their everyday life free from the threat or fear of psychological, emotional, and physical harm from others.

Employers have a responsibility to safeguard their employees’ personal safety. There is also plenty that individual workers can do to ensure they are as safe as possible while going about their job. Should a worker find themselves in a threatening situation, it’s important they know about the legislation relating to self-defence.


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Workplace personal safety is the ability to go about your life and work without harm, either physical or psychological. Whether we’re in the workplace or travelling for work, we need to be mindful of our personal safety and that of others. There are steps we can take to protect our personal safety at all times.

We can protect personal safety by taking sensible precautions. These include making sure we share our basic itinerary with a colleague who can raise the alarm if we do not make our destination, creating risk assessments, having a charged phone at all times to call for help if needed and not taking any unnecessary risks.

Emotional safety is the right everybody has to go about their life without feeling attacked, facing verbal abuse or bullying. It can also mean feeling safe enough to be themselves in a work context without fear of abuse. Personal safety is as much about ensuring emotional safety as it is about physical safety.
