Situational Awareness Training

What is Situational Awareness and why does it matter?

Situational awareness is being aware of what is happening around you in terms of where you are, where you are supposed to be, and whether anyone or anything around you is a threat to your health and safety.

Our training workshop is designed to teach staff the fundamentals of situational awareness and first response for threats and emergencies, and familiarise them with workplace / facility emergency response processes.
