How It Works

The goal of The S.A.F.E. Approach is to assist healthcare workers in recognizing and mitigating the impact of potentially hazardous situations—while maintaining a focus on dignity and respect for the individual.

Crisis situations have the potential to cause adverse reactions in individuals due to stress, fear, and anxiety. By taking an approach rooted in compassion, empathy, and a comprehensive understanding of human behavior, we show healthcare workers that most conflicts can be resolved without defensive measures. This differentiates The S.A.F.E. Approach from similar healthcare staff safety training programs.

  • S – Safety
    The S.A.F.E. Approach™ method has the safety or everyone in mind. Those who participate in our training learn techniques that will keep them safe and others as well.
  • A – Attitude
    It’s been said that, “We can’t control others actions; we can only control our own!” While this may be true in many encounters, we believe that our own attitude plays an important role in any encounter and has a strong influence on the attitude of others.
  • F – Focus
    In order to be effective, we must maintain focus on the techniques taught. As we all are aware, habits form when we repeat routines of behavior. Done enough, these habits become subconscious activities.
  • E – Empathy
    Empathy has been defined as “the capacity to recognize, and to some extent, share feelings that are being experienced by another.” It is an important component of The S.A.F.E. Approach™ method.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 60 percent of all non-fatal injuries from occupational assaults and violent acts occur among healthcare and social service workers. Further, these acts occur most often in hospitals, nursing and personal care facilities, and residential care services.

There’s no question that those in the healthcare industry are experiencing an ever-increasing responsibility to care for and protect their staff, patients, and visitors. The Occupational Safety and Health Act mandates that, in addition to compliance with hazard-specific standards, all employers have a general duty to provide their employees with a workplace free from recognized hazards likely to cause death or serious physical harm. Not only must you concern yourself with quality medical care, but you also have a duty to protect these individuals from physical harm.
