Safe travel has never been more important.
If you want your teams to feel reassured then make sure they get some guidance.
My usual workshops run from 10:00 to 15:00 but over zoom I have found they work better in a set of hour long sessions over 4 weeks.
Not only that its recorded so if anyone misses a session due to other commitments they can be sent the recording.
Ten still seems to be a good number for the workshop but this can be increased to 15 without impacting the interactiveness of those attending.
Drop me a message if this could be suitable for your organisation at the special zoom rate.

Benefit or Problem - Car Central Locking
For those of us that are old enough to remember, the invention of central locking was a huge improvement. No more leaning across the seats trying to unlock one of the other doors. Additionally, once in all doors can be locked from the press of a single button.
The down side of central locking or automatic unlocking with keyless cars is that once the driver’s door opens all the doors open. This means that anyone crouching down by the side of one of the passenger doors also has access to the car.
Once in the car simply lock all the doors. If you don’t lock the doors then every time you stop at a junction, in traffic or at lights it is perfectly possible for someone to open one of the passenger doors and get into the car with you.
Alternatively, they may just open the door and steal your bag or laptop. When I run workshops from our centre one of the role pays is for the person to drive once around the block. I know they will have to stop at the end of our car park as it turns onto a main road. Additionally, you cannot see around the bushes on the passenger side. As they stop another attendee pops up and opens the passenger door.

Concentrate on the basics 1st.
As the world starts to look at returning to some kind of normal there will be extremists looking to capitalise on the potential for huge publicity. The opportunity to create panic and fear will be magnified to a level far greater than before.
Ensuring counter terrorism training is in place for your office is going to be key but often overlooked due to the huge issue of how to get people to return to work.
This is a great opportunity for the terrorist. Facilities and HR will be at full stretch in just being able to enable some form of normal.
One of the simplest changes to make and one some organisations have still not enacted is their evacuation policies. At no time do you want everyone gathering outside yet l still see these plaques. With social distancing its yet another reason to make sure your policy includes dispersal and tracking rather than gathering following evacuation.
A simple tip for most organisations to implement and one nearly always covered in the workshops I provide. Simple tips like this and of course many others, are what everyone always remembers and simplicity means that people can take action. It doesnt matter if its something about a fire drill, how to avoid conflict or to stay safe in a hotel room simple tips and how people can relate to them are what makes these workshops so effective. ...

RFID bracelets that can't be removed by the visitors/staff in the building... Count them on the way out the exits.
Who's gonna win the WAR ?
Lock down protesters the new terrorists? The ones not in masks lol
More fear porn.
Since you brought it upLet this sink in 🤔
Google have just announced that no one will be returning to their office from home until next year. They will probably delay it even more, depending on the latest evidence of further Covid 19 spikes. It's probably cheaper for businesses to keep workers at home.
Government scares everyone into gathering into one place for their RFID chip vaccine.
All signs should be in ENGLISH ONLY!! , if they want to be here!! Speak the Language!!! SIMPLE!!!

It wont affect my organisation
I must have heard this more times than I said it to suppliers when I was a Director.
Now on the other side of the fence, I have to say you may well be wrong. Sorry I know the customer is always right - except when you are not.
Terrorism awareness is vital for everyone. Time and again we see incidents that affect people going about their daily lives, people just like me and you. Of course that awareness training is much more likely to be used to avoid someone picking your pocket, taking your Ipad, phone or assaulting you.
Luckily we are not likely to be the victim of terrorism however as the people relaxing in the park in Reading found out last week its not impossible. Maybe something about your lifestyle, what you wear, who you work for or country you originate from may be just the trigger someone needs to target you as the victim. Those same triggers could also be what makes you the kidnap, mugging, sexual or racial target.
Office or zoom based workshops are great ways for you to help enable your staff to help themselves. Dont wait until its too late get people involved and thinking now for their own benefit and that of the organisation. ... See MoreSee Less
Assault - The risk of home working
Many organisations already had significant levels of homeworking prior to Covid-19 while others rushed to put something in place.
Who considered the employee that is being sexually and/or physically assaulted?
They are now working in a environment you may have insisted upon. It is a common mistake to think things don’t happen to people like us. How many have asked?
If you assume everyone has the happy home life you may have or dream of then you could be mistaken. Home for some could be the worst experience of their life and now their main sanctuary, the office, has vanished.
We all need to recognise that anyone at any level can suffer. It may not be physical it may be mental abuse, but it could be devastating to that person. The sudden reaction to Covid-19 could possibly have undone all the recent advances in mental health you have been striving to implement for years.
You have policies on abuse, assault and mental health that cover the workplace, but that is what their home effectively is at the moment.
Have you even considered that their current place of work could be their nightmare. ... See MoreSee Less
