Home Visiting is a generally safe area of practice. Occasionally, though, situations come up where a home visitor may be in an unsafe setting. This 60-minute online module will give home visitors an overview of personal safety, describing what factors contribute to unsafe situations while travelling to and from the home visit and while in the home. The home visitor will learn how to prepare for home visitors with safety in mind and recognize and avoid unsafe situations. The module will also show demonstrations of basic self-defense techniques.

This module is not a definitive or comprehensive personal safety or self-defense course. Any tactics or advice given should be used with the guidance of your supervisor.
