Physical Intervention & Breakaway Techniques

Physical intervention procedures are for use in conditions in which the safety of the acting-out individual or others is in imminent danger. This training stresses positive de-escalation skills and strategies as the most important methods of intervention, with physical intervention used only as a last resort.

It is imperative that personnel in higher risk roles such as door supervision are taught safer methods of physical intervention, this helps reduce the use of high-risk techniques, and improves staff and customer safety.

Physical interventions should not be used to compel compliance, to punish, or as the most convenient method for personnel. In a circumstance in which a physical intervention is used, it should be discontinued once the acting-out person has regained control.

Only personnel properly trained in prevention strategies and safe responses should be managing disruptive, anxious, or violent behaviour.

Personnel must be aware that serious physical and psychological risks are inherent in any physical intervention, and indeed the only truly safe physical restraint is the one that never occurs.

It is ideal for those working in licensable security functions, this includes workers from the following sectors:
