# Course Title Start Date Finish date Price
71 Security Supervision: Effective Manpower Scheduling, Counselling and Psychological Techniques Wed, 10 December 2014 Wed, 10 December 2014 950 TTD Per Seat

Course Fee $950.00

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Supervision is a fundamental component to the success of security and public safety organizations. It is important that organizations master security supervision for greater efficiency and effectiveness. This leads to better service delivery, cost savings and revenue growth.

This course presents cutting edge ways in which supervisors can develop and implement efficient manpower schedules that will best match their organization’s business operations. Issues such as tasks/needs identification; matching skills sets, and roster development, approvals and publication will be tackled among others. Case studies and illustrations of industry’s best practices will be showcased. The course will demonstrate that - you don’t have to be doing things the same way because it has always been done so! There may be more efficient techniques to use.

The other critical matter that supervisors face on a daily basis either at the office or on the field where they interact with officers is officers with problems and challenges probably due to the work environment, long hours, personal financial strain, etc. While some organizations have Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP), many do not. In any case, it is very beneficial that ALL supervisors possess some basic workable knowledge and understanding of counselling and psychological techniques which they can use. These can be adopted in an interim or emergency period before more professional assistance can be provided.

These preliminary diagnostics and interventions can save lives of their valuable personnel. As such, the course provides participants with the necessary tools and techniques to identify and detect early signs of problems and to take simple action where necessary and to be able to make the appropriate referrals where required. A multiplicity of solutions to problems are presented.

‘Sick Building Syndrome’, as the name implies, can be defined as a situation whereby the occupants of a building experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building - a condition affecting office staff, typically marked by headaches and respiratory problems, attributed to unhealthy or stressful factors in the working environment including poor ventilation.

This issue may need to be addressed due to high absenteeism, lack of employee morale and lower productivity. While many employees have complained about these effects and employers have grappled with ways to treat with this issue, there is still no definitive proof that this illness is real. In an effort to ensure that productivity levels remain high, employers should invest in finding out the causes of these issues.
