How Does a Lay Member of The Public Stand if They Use Force in A Public Place To Prevent Another Person Seriously Injuring or Killing Themselves or Others [Video]

How Does a Lay Member of The Public Stand if They Use Force in A Public Place To Prevent Another Person Seriously Injuring or Killing Themselves or Others?

I’ve just been asked this question so I thought I’d share my answer with you in case it may help anyone else out there.

In short, anyone who acted in good faith would be protected by the Common Law and Section 76 of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act (which now encapsulated the Common Law), provided that they acted reasonable in the circumstances.

Should any allegation arise post the intervention, then again, the person who intervened in good faith would be protected by the law.

In our BTEC Level 3 Restraint Trainer Award course and our BTEC Level 3 Self-Defence Instructor Award Course, we cover a lot of law which is specifically put together to give those we train a comprehensive understanding of the principles of reasonable force (as well as instruction on the Human Rights Act, Health & Safety legislation, Children’s legislation, and a lot more too) to help them better understand how the laws apply in our professional fields of operation.

And we are always on hand to help with more advice and guidance if needed.

To find out more about our courses check out our website at www.nfps.info and if you fancy coming along and training with us drop me an email or give me a call.

Always happy to help.

What Do I Do As A Trainer If I Believe a Learner is Not Fit Enough To Undertake the Training [Video]

What would you do as a trainer if a learner turned up on your physical intervention training day and they disclosed information to you about themselves that led you to believe that they weren’t fit enough to do the training or capable enough to do the training but you were being told that you had to train them anyway?
