We believe employers can have a role to play in helping prevent suicides.
There can be very few more tragic issues that an employer, HR or colleague may have to deal with than the suicide of a fellow worker.
We provide training that is focuses on prevention, to support senior leaders, line managers, HR and Occupational health professionals identify staff members who may have suicidal feelings and give practical advice on how to deal with a crisis.
Suicide can be compounded or even caused by poor management practices, inappropriate behaviours such as workplace stress, harassment, or bullying, by colleagues and poorly implemented organisational change.
Employers can assist prevent the risk of suicide by having processes in place to assess the effect of any disciplinary action/suspension on the person under investigation. This should be in place from immediately the suspension takes place.
A good suicide prevention policy does not have to be a separate document. Often it is best to address the issues within the wider occupational health and well-being policies.
We provide Suicide First Aid training for multi-sector practitioners including health, housing, social care, education, criminal justice, call centre operators, private, voluntary, and public sector workers, and community groups.
Our Suicide First Aid courses are evidence-based, and supported by City & Guilds of London, the globally recognised awarding body. Participants will gain 6 NQF credit points at Level 4 by completing a workbook of tasks that are assessed against the set learning outcomes.
