Welcome to the prevention and management of violence and aggression (PMVA) physical
intervention training section of the site. Here you will find details on a range
of training courses that cover a wide range of physical interventions. You will also
find training designed for employees who are in potentially high risk working environments.
A much wider range of organisations than ever before now recognise that training
employees to keep themselves safe is not only an essential training need, but as
a responsible employer a duty of care.
Blue Concept Training’s PMVA trainers are all qualified General Services Association
(GSA) tutors. The GSA physical intervention system provides employees with a set
of effective techniques that may be used to either breakaway from violent situations
or apply restraint where appropriate.
The system includes a set of dynamic physical techniques all drawn from a core curriculum.
Every technique has been developed and informed by over 20 years of practical experience
in some of the highest level crisis environments.
The techniques are easy to learn, easy to use and effective. On each course the participants
will also learn the legal context of using such responses, understand the key steps
and the medical implications
