Content: During times of heightened tension, it is common for people to experience increased levels of stress and anxiety, both in their personal life, as well as in their professional capacity. This discomfort may exist whilst travelling to and from work, or even at their workplace. Individuals, groups or crowds who intend on causing disruption can be intimidating to passengers of public transport, to pedestrians, and to employees performing their roles. As a duty of care, it is important to provide employees with the necessary knowledge and skills, so they can protect themselves when the risk of their surrounding environment changes. When persons are looking to commit crime, cause disorder and disruption, their body language and behaviours change. This is due to an increase in stress-levels in relation to what they are about to undertake. Understanding these signs and then making the correct decision in how to protect yourself, your family, colleagues and passengers from confrontational situations, and reach a place of safety, will increase confidence during these times and reduce anxiety. This overview in situational awareness will provide the attendees with an insight into:  How to increase their observation levels;  How to recognise the baseline environment around their home, travel route or place of work;  How to identify some of the common indicators that persons display when acting with mal- intent;  What measures should you take if the situation escalates.
