Welcome to Salvas Learning a UK based leader in delivering accredited Personal safety, Managing conflict and Workplace violence reduction training to staff , helping them learn and improve their skills when dealing with clients who are emotional, difficult, abusive, threatening, aggressive or assaultive.

With an increase in violent crime and a ‘Substantial’ terror threat in the UK, we created the #ZeroResponder bleed control kit and short training programme for workers and bystanders who will be first on the scene of an event where people are badly injured and bleeding heavily.

Since 2009 we have provided training to organisations in the public, private and charitable sectors in the UK and Europe helping them create safe and positive working environments for customers and staff alike. Our core courses cover:

  • Personal safety and Conflict management
  • De-escalation techniques

All our tutors are highly experienced and have a minimum of 10 years of experience dealing with conflict in the workplace and work related violence in a variety of work settings.

#ZeroResponder Bleed control practical skills workshops are delivered over 3½ hours with a recommendation that two workshops per day are more cost effective. There is a 1: 12 ratio of tutor to delegates.
