Situational awareness training is taught to our team members to make them aware of what is happening around them in terms, and whether anyone or anything around them is a threat to their (or the people/property they protect) health and safety.
Our knowledge, experience and education enable us to understand what is going on around us and helps us to determine if it is safe. This means that everyone’s situational awareness is individual and potentially different. We teach our team members to use their individual situational awareness to make decisions for their safety and the safety of others.
Our team members ae taught that situational awareness is only as accurate as their perception or reading of the situation. How they read a situation can be influenced by many things such as the type of information they have been given, and their experience in their work environment.
Situational Awareness is successful by establishing an environmental baseline, evaluating anomalies, running a risk assessment, and reacting accordingly.
