    Maybo’s SEAL™ Test informs decision making when responding to a situation, by considering whether your response is Safe, Effective, Appropriate and Lawful. 

    Using Maybo’s SEAL™ Test will ensure any actions you take are reasonable, necessary and proportionate.

    This short video explains how to consider your response using SEAL™ as part of Maybo’s SAFER Approach to conducting a dynamic risk assessment:


    Key Elements of Maybo’s SEAL™ Test:

    • Safe - consider the safest option for you and others
    • Effective - what will work in the circumstances, consider your abilities and the support available
    • Appropriate - consider the best interests of those involved and follow policies, guidance and training
    • Lawful - understand the authority you have and your duty of care to yourself and others

    Even when the options available are limited, using the SEAL™ Test will help guide and justify your decisions.
