Pain Compliance Techniques With Children Are Not Illegal

Misinformation and the Spread of Fake News

In a recent blog post I mentioned that I had recently met with a Government appointed panel of ‘experts’, the IRAP, who told me, quite enthusiastically, that it is illegal for anyone to use a physical technique with a child that may intentionally or unintentionally cause pain.

I have challenged this statement and had an independent legal opinion provided by a Barrister at Law who has confirmed that the statement made by the Chair of the Panel is wrong. To read more, click here:

More Corporate Manslaughter Prosecutions

The fourth and fifth companies have been found guilty of charges of Corporate Manslaughter resulting in one judge commenting: “I propose to fine the company every penny that it has. I have no greater power to do anything other than impose a fine and I cannot impose a greater fine than all of its assets.”

Lawyers specialising in health and safety have predicted the frequency of convictions would accelerate as the Crown Prosecution Service has tens of corporate manslaughter cases open.

Save Between £3,000 – £14,000 Over the Next Three years by Mapping Over to NFPS Ltd

Mapping Over to NFPS Ltd

Last week I blogged about the recent Supreme Court Ruling in relation to the ‘Non-Delegable Duty of Care’, and the implications for Security Companies who employ Door Supervisors on a full-time, part-time or on a sub-contracted basis. This liability possibly also extends to venue owners who engage the services of the company’s who supply the door supervisors to their venue.

The real liability is where the a number of door supervisors have all been trained in different methods of physical intervention, and we mentioned that we had a solution to that problem, and here it is.

If you are a Physical Intervention Trainer then we are offering you the opportunity to Map-over to the NFPS system which will help reduce your liability and save you a lot of money – literally thousands of pounds!

This Supreme Court ruling has now set a case precedent that has implications for organisations and individuals in many different occupational areas.

Supreme Court Ruling on Non-Delegable Duty of Care


A recent ruling from the UK’s highest court, the Supreme Court, has paved the way for the family of a brain damaged girl to pursue compensation from a local education authority and this ruling has major implications for any organisation that uses sub-contracted agencies or staff. This ruling also has significant implications not just for all local education authorities but also for head-teachers of schools and other agencies such as hospitals, security companies, venues who use sub-contracted door supervisors and care homes who use agency staff.

The Implications of Article 2 of the ECHR, MoD sued for Negligence, a Farmer Charged with Gross Negligence Manslaughter and the ‘Nuremberg Defense’

Art 2

Lawyers acting for the family of one of the Red Caps (Royal Military Police) killed in Iraq, have launched a legal claim alleging that commanders failed to take reasonable measures to keep him and his fellow military police officers safe.

In another case, the Crown Prosecution Service has charged a man with gross negligence manslaughter after a walker was killed after being attacked by a bull on a farm.

These two cases have serious implications for those of us who teach and commission training.

How We Do What We Do – The Difference That Makes The Difference

How We Do What We Do

I recently received an e-mail from someone who has been a martial arts instructor for 25 years and who is also a Police instructor. He wanted to know how we could manage to train someone to be a Restraint Trainer in 5 days when it takes a martial artist, for example, many years to become an instructor.

In short, he wanted to know how we “differed” from all the others.
