It currently operates throughout Ontario and has taught more than 120,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its Corporate Safety Training Programs throughout Toronto, Canada. The company is owned and managed by Chris Roberts who is a professional teaching Director and self-defense instructor.

SAFE International Corporate Safety Training Seminars/Toronto self defense provide employees and management with tips and strategies to recognize, avoid, and handle personal security risks specific to their jobs. Prior to the commencement of training, SAFE International instructors spend time with each company learning about their employees and communicating with Department Leaders and those employees working in the field. It is through this personal attention that SAFE International is able to truly design a course that will have lasting positive effects for their clients and their employees.

SAFE International teaches that Recognizing and Avoiding dangerous situations is always the top priority. SAFE International instructors will address the daily routines and the risks that employees encounter in their daily jobs. Through role playing and discussion, participants will learn how to take common sense measures to reduce the risk of becoming a victim.  The knowledge they gain can be applied to all aspects of their profession - direct sales, interacting with customers and fellow employees, travel and other work related transactions.

Clients are taught how to recognize different forms of verbal abuse, and how to defuse in order to resolve conflict without violence. Clients participate in verbal drills specific to their job related challenges. It is through these reality based drills that your employees will develop the confidence to handle various forms of abuse, without the need to be physical, while also preparing oneself in the event that it does. These verbal exercises can be particularly valuable when one might find themselves in an uncomfortable and potentially life threatening situation - entertaining clients, traveling, employee differences, leaving late at night by car, taxi or public transit, walking home, etc. SAFE International believes that not only is self protection a necessity, but it is now a form of insurance that will make your business more profitable and your employees more confident and secure.

The second phase of a SAFE International Corporate Safety Course is the physical aspect which addresses how to React and Respond in the event that conflict becomes physical. Participants are taught basic, gross motor self defense skills meant to help one get away safely and as quick as possible.  The principles of their teachings are based on how to react instinctively without having to think about what to do. This is not martial arts, but rather, real skills meant for real life scenarios. SAFE International is a complete course covering everything from A to Z in corporate safety training. SAFE International addresses the emotional, psychological, verbal and physical segments of violence in today’s world.

Chris Roberts, CEO of SAFE International also trains/consults people privately on a weekly basis.
