Do they make up the numbers?
Have you the recognised number of first aiders in your company, do you meet current legislations for your company or place of work? The classification is low risk (I.E an office with 1 per 100 members of staff) or high risk (1 per 50). Don’t forget that all first aiders need covering due to absences/ holidays. To get your team up-to-date visit my website. (I cover all areas of Dorset)
AED is what you need!
All healthcare providers (including GPs, Dentists, Clinics etc) must have an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) on site, with every member of staff trained in how to use it. This includes the healthcare professionals as well as receptionists and those involved in admin. My AED certification course can help you meet the requirements.
Do you look after anyone under 16 in Dorset?
As you may or may not know the Department for Health / HSE and Ofsted are reviewing the first aid standards for everyone who looks after people under the age of 16 (like staff at day nurseries, playgroups, childminders, infant schools, teachers etc). This will almost certainly come into place very soon. Can I help you meet these requirements?
Recent training success in Bournemouth
Over the past few months, myself and the team have been busy working with local companies like the Flirt Café in Bournemouth, and charities like BCHA, training their staff and volunteers to meet current first aid training requirements. This helps them to fulfil the current laws as well as boosting employee moral and self confidence. If you run a charity or company in any area of Dorset I can help.
