This week sees a new change in the law to give homeowners more of a defence if they wake up to find a burglar in their home. Yet these very same homeowners, who the law is now committed to protecting further, are sold short while at work – a place where they are more likely to be confronted by someone with the potential to harm them.
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.

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.

We are delighted to announce that we are now offering a BTEC Level 3 Award Certificate in The Law & Risk Management in Relation to Reasonable Force.
The Unit is intended for people who need to demonstrate a formal understanding of the law in relation to the use of physical force, and also how health and safety legislation should be implemented when planning and running physical skills training courses. It is ideal for anyone who may need to instruct or to use and justify a use of force response option as part of their employed role.
This BTEC Level 3 Unit Certificate has major benefits for any of you who need to have a proper qualification in this area, such as those of you working in the maritime security industry as identified in the ‘Use of Force’ Section in the ‘Interim Guidance for UK Flagged Shipping on the Use of Armed Guards to Defend Against the Threat of Piracy in Exceptional Circumstances‘. This certificate will satisfy the requirement in Section 8, particularly as it now includes the latest models and guidance used by the courts when justifying the use of reasonable force.
This Unit Certificate will provide you with evidence of learning at a Level 3 National Vocational Level which has to be of major benefit to you if you are ever challenged about a use of force situation or the quality or competency of the advice, guidance and instruction that you may be giving in that area.
Following on from the recent posts that we have uploaded on Managing a Prolonged Restraint and the recent findings of the Winterbourne View Serious Case Review I think that you will find the following interview and demonstration by Mark Williams, one of the UK’s Leading Expert Witnesses of interest.
In this short video Mark will be demonstrating the advantages of his new Soft-Cuff which we will soon be training trainers in.
