What is safeguarding?

Every organisation has a duty to prevent harm, abuse and harassment from occurring. To protect people (especially vulnerable adults and children) from harm and to act upon any information received when a safeguarding concern has been raised. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.

Regular polygraph tests for those who come into contact with children and vulnerable adults can provide organisations an extra level of protection.


Protecting the vulnerable in society is the primary goal of any organisation tasked with looking after children and vulnerable adults.
