Since 2009 in response to workplace violence within central and local Government and private corporations, FearFee embarked on the delivery of focused specialised safety and security training for Government, NGOs, and select corporate organisations.
In 2015 FearFree continues to provide customer focused safety and security training to the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, New Zealand Transport Agency, Maritime New Zealand, and the Ministry of Health (Regional Public Health Organisations).
Local Government training extends to 31 Regional, City and District Councils including Auckland, Hamilton, Far North, Whangarei, Tauranga, Tasman, Timaru, Southland, and Invercargill.
NGO and corporate clients include Air New Zealand, Transpower, and the New Zealand Medical Association. Support for our ‘at risk’ communities allow us to deliver workshops to The Fred Hollows Foundation and City Mission Auckland, Lifewise, and the James Liston Hostel for the homeless. These crucial community services are provided our workshop packages free of charge and endorses our commitment to social change.
Experience has shown us that training and regular refresher courses embeds training outcomes which build a culture of change within organisations to maximise and enhance safety in the workplace.
FearFree's customer conflict workshop developed and delivered to the New Zealand Medical Association was a finalist in the 2013 Health and Safety awards. Since its inception the training package has been delivered to hundreds of front-line medical staff around New Zealand. The training has prevented serious harm to medical professionals dealing with intoxicated, violent, drug induced, and mentally unwell patients.
As well as the workplace violence workshops, Fear Free are fully conversant with the recently mandated New Zealand Government Protective Security Requirements (PSR). This includes security risk and assessment consultancy for staff security and public safety in the workplace particularly front-line and reception areas.
Personal and physical security training, and incorporated standard operational procedures and policy are our staples and we deliver on all three components.
