Today we are bombarded with negative news nearly all of the time. News about the state of the economy, poverty, financial problems and personal and organisational hardship. But have you ever wondered or thought for a moment that maybe it is the very news itself that is creating the problem and helping to perpetuate it? Or could it be thought itself that the news creates that is the problem. If so, could it also be the answer? Could the invisible create the visible?
“All of the things that a person creates with his or her hands must first exist in his or her thoughts. In essence, everything is created twice.”
All thought is invisible. It cannot be seen, smelt or touched. Yet thoughts create things. The intangible becomes the tangible.

Becoming a Physical Restraint or Self-Defence Trainer for some is just a matter of finding a course – any course – and basing a decision on price and location so that they can get trained and start running courses. Yet this is possibly a very short-sighted approach to becoming involved in a very litigious and legally complex area of work, and one that can catch up on you if you if you are not fully prepared.
For example, how prepared are you if someone you train tries to sue you for £Thousands for an alleged injury that they say they received on your training course? Are you prepared for years of uncertainty and worry? Could you demonstrate that you undertook a risk assessment that was done to a ‘suitable and sufficient’ standard and that you did everything that was ‘reasonably practicable’ to minimise the risk? Do you understand what the definitions of the words ‘suitable and sufficient’ and ‘reasonably practicable’ mean in health and safety terms? Have you had any formal training in how to do risk assessments? Do you have a safe system of work that you can evidence to a court to demonstrate that you manage your training safely? Do you know what paperwork you should complete as part of that safe system of work and how long you should keep it for?
Following on from the Court of Appeal ruling in the case of the Autistic Teenager who won £28,000 in damages against the Met Police for a ‘brutal restraint’ I can imagine many people’s negative opinions of restraint equipment being re-enforced, quite rightly so in the case involving the young teenager.
However, there is still a need for such equipment, especially and specifically when we consider the safety and welfare of vulnerable people in our society, and especially if we consider the risks associated with prolonged restraint and the need to act in the best interest of vulnerable people consistent with the various pieces of legislation in relation to best interest criteria, safeguarding and the duty of care owed.
