SafeAware© Everyday School Safety

Everything school staff members need to know about school climate, emergency response and the prevention of suicide and violence

  Enroll in Course

It’s a fact that our schools must focus significant time and energy on physical safety hazards, drills, crisis response plans, student fighting, gangs, and suicide prevention.

It’s also a tragic reality that violence, sometimes fatal, is an increasingly common sight in our nation’s schools. When these incidents occur, they tend to be unexpected. Sadly, that also means the strategies required to prevent them or greatly lessen their impact, are often not in place.

This means pre-emptive risk prevention is absolutely critical.

The Everyday School Safety course will provide you with the information you need, to greatly reduce the risk to your students. You need to ensure an optimal level of safety, with every staff member knowing how to keep your students safe. And that’s exactly what this course will show you.

Greater flexibility and lower priced.

We know budgets are tight and that it can be difficult to have key people attending the same course at the same time. That’s why we developed the perfect solution for you. It’s now easier and more cost-effective for you to get this essential training than ever before.

Here’s why.

By embracing online training technology, we’re able to provide you with the exact same training online, that you’d receive if industry expert, Suzanne Sibole, visited you on-site.

The benefits to you are huge.

  • Your team will be able to be trained at the times and dates that work best for you.
  • The fee is a fraction of what you’d pay, if Suzanne trained your staff on site.

  • Everyday school safety measures
  • Physical security
  • Reducing risk through prevention
  • The critical role of school climate
  • Suicide prevention and warning signs
