Guardian Exercise Rehabilitation

| Gaven Wicks Managing Director

Last Saturday we had the pleasure of presenting at Guardian Exercise Rehabilitation’s National Conference. Almost one hundred employees attended from across the Australia for a three day conference which ended with our training on Saturday afternoon.   What a fantastic group! Despite it being an incredibly serious and vital issue to educate the attendees in, we managed to have a lot of laughs and engage all employees in our afternoon session.   We discussed in depth many issues encountered by staff with respect to: - home visits and entering unknown residences, - travelling, - personal security and safety and -...

Workplace Security and Safety

| Gaven Wicks Managing Director

Granted this article was written from an American perspective, however their concern that employers need to look after the protection and safety of their employees is one that resonates across the pond in Australia.   We certainly are finding that employers are switching on to the need to educate their staff in their own personal security.  Employers are responsible for doing what they can to ensure their employees are safe whilst at work ….. and even travelling to and from work.  We applaud businesses taking measures to ensure the safety of their staff.  This can only be a positive move...

| Gaven Wicks Managing Director

Well that was fun!   On the weekend Strike Training and Consulting had its first ever group on a Hens Day as part of our Womens Self Defence class!   Such a wonderful idea for groups of women who don’t necessarily want to get a stripper or get completely trashed on a Hens celebration. This group of 11 ladies dressed up with their “Zoolander” theme and learnt many skills regarding prevention, personal awareness, verbal and physical techniques to use for their own self protection.   The fantastic group of women who attended …. brought in their own smorgasboard of morning...

Christchurch Tragedy

| Gaven Wicks Managing Director

Our heartfelt thoughts go out to all of those affected by the absolute horror in Christchurch.  It beggars belief that anyone could unleash such hatred on innocent people.  As the toll climbs, all I can think of is the shock that the beautiful City of Christchurch must be in.   It seems this is not a problem only for the major centres around the world, this tragedy can occur anywhere.  I truly hope ALL of those responsible are caught and given exactly what they deserve.   https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-03-15/live-blog-christchurch-shooting-multiple-fatalities-new-zealand/10904416
