Personal Safety & First Aid Training during COVID-19 Restrictions

In line with the Government’s recent relaxation of the COVID-19 lockdown, we are fully adhering to the latest round of regulations. For some of us, such regulations state that working from home is the preferred option, although others are still expected to attend their employer’s workplace location. We are mindful of this situation and are happy to provide remote or virtual training, whenever this  is feasible. In the case of First Aid training, we are happy to attend our Clients’ workplace to deliver training safely by adhering to social distancing, together with the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), as and when appropriate. All Staff Defence Instructors are kept fully-informed about COVID-19 regulations and will work alongside our Clients to deliver on-site training safely by undertaking frequent hand-washing, 2M social distancing, and the proper use of PPE.

Should you have any questions regarding our Travel Safety and/or Personal Safety training courses, we will be very pleased to help, so please feel free to email us at:



During the period of COVID-19 restrictions, we are aware that many companies with international interests are already debating what is going to happen when the UK travel restrictions are lifted. Undoubtedly, there will be a number of employees, waiting to complete required safety training, prior to their deployment to various overseas’ locations. Therefore, we, at Staff Defence, fully understand our Clients’ situation, so we are offering to work with them to help each Client in becoming operational again as soon as possible, in accordance with the UK Government’s Guidelines for organisations during the COVID-19 outbreak. In consideration of this offer, only when travel restrictions are lifted, we are happy to liaise with our Clients about the following possibilities:-

• An intensive training phase during which as many employees as possible receive the appropriate preparation to fulfill their tuition needs
• We will liaise with our Clients to ensure that our *HEAT course is delivered by adhering to the appropriate COVID-19 guidance. For example, our Instructors will lead the HEAT course with the prescribed COVID-19 protocols in place including Social Distancing/Hand-washing regimes or whatever guidance is necessary, according to Government Guidelines.
• We will explore alternative training options for Clients, who have staff required to be on deployment in critical field activities.
• The Staff Defence HEAT courses are presented at Pippingford Park in Sussex, where we work in alignment with the training environment and its instructions regarding COVID-19.
• All bespoke training courses that we provide are discussed in advance with our respective Clients.
• Once the COVID-19 Lockdown period has been lifted, enabling employees to return to work, all our training operations will be executed, according to the Staff Defence COVID-19 Operations Policy, which is available to Clients and interested parties.
