One Second Away

One Second Away is our new training course that aims to give understanding as the ramifications of violence and reduce violence in our nighttime economy. This training was born from the work of the international, STOP: One Punch Campaign.

STOP: One Punch Can Kill is an organisation that aims to raise awareness about the devastating consequences of street and social violence. The name itself underscores the severity of the issue: a single punch can be lethal and was founded after the tragic death of David Cassai in 2012, when David lost his life due to an unprovoked violent attack that ended with a ferocious one-punch.

Their vision is to unite people affected by senseless acts of violence and work toward creating safer communities.

They advocate for harsher punishment and deterrence of such violent actions.

In 2014, they successfully petitioned the Victorian Government to introduce the “Coward’s Punch Manslaughter” law, which includes a 10-year mandatory minimum non-parole period for offenders.

By taking this training, we aim to inform and impact delegates to understand the impact a split-second decision can make to you, your family and others.
