Job-Specific Personal Safety Training

Job-Specific Personal Safety Training, Corporate Wellness Programs and Conference Bookings

The Job-Specific Personal Safety programs at Sisu Self Defence address the personal safety needs of women and men on-the-job. In addition, we can work with your business to develop a policies and procedures manual for employee training in risk assessment, conflict resolution, threat response and self defence strategies. Any job that involves interacting with the public can present situations that pose a threat to your safety or the safety of employees or clients/customers. Being prepared for the "what ifs" makes good, practical sense. Our programs are tailored to theIMG 0806 day-to-day personal safety challenges of your occupation, and will equip you with tools to manage harassment, threats and potential violence. We offer classroom-style sessions, interactive discussion and hands-on training to help put some tools in your life skills toolbox. With the emphasis on both mental and physical skills, you'll explore tools like understanding the predator mindset and the psychology of potentially violent confrontation, trusting your intuition, building awareness, reading body language, communication skills and knowing your rights under the law, in addition to hands-on defensive strategies.

About Our Instructors

Many of our programs are offered in a women-only environment, including the core instructor team for our signature courses, Be Your Own Superhero and The Basics. However, we also offer gender neutral training. At Sisu WSD Corporate, we have a strong working relationship with a number of highly qualified experts, both male and female, who may be called upon to assist in the instruction of your program. Their experience and professional knowledge is an essential resource when designing job-specific safety training and corporate health and wellness programs. We will outline every detail of the program, from the instructor team to course delivery, together with you prior to beginning any group training program.

What Kinds of Training Programs Do We Provide?

Sisu offers women-only and gender neutral training programs, health and wellness programs, and on-site consultations and policy development (anti-bullying and anti-harrassment policies, location security reviews, etc.). All of our personal safety programs pay close attention to both mental and physical aspects of self defence. Self defence programs may be held in a classroom-only setting with interactive discussion and demonstrations, while others include an opportunity to engage in scenario training and reality-based role-play situtations that give you practical, hands-on skills. With attention to your rights under the law (based on the Criminal code of Canada) and an understanding of the use of force continuum, all of our programs provide empowerment-based tools to help detect, defuse, disengage and defend against potentially violent confrontation. Any program can be held at one of our partner locations, on-site at your location or even outdoors (in the case of some bootcamp-style health and wellness classes).
