We are pleased to announce that we have recently completed and passed Emergency First Aid at Work and Emergency Administration of Epinephrine Auto-Injector training, meaning that The Marketing People now exceed legal provision of first aid in the workplace.
Are you compliant?
The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require you to provide ‘adequate and appropriate first-aid equipment, facilities and people, so your employees can be given immediate help if they are injured or taken ill at work.’ These regulations apply to all workplaces, but legislations differ depending on the circumstances.
Head to www.hse.gov.uk to find out how first aid affects your business and if you are compliant.
Who to choose?
If you do need to organise appropriate training, as an employer you will need assurance that you have selected a competent training provider.
This was a no-brainer for us. We have worked with D&A Education on many marketing projects, helping them to present their business and its services professionally. So far, we have: reviewed their business name; created their positioning statement and strapline; designed their logo; applied their brand ID to key stationery elements including business cards, letterheads, compliment slips, introducers, flyers, certificates and roller banners; purchased a relevant URL; designed and developed their website, and set up their e-mail accounts, just to name a few.
We continue to work with them to ensure their marketing is still benefiting their business and, as with many of our clients, we have built a friendly, long-lasting relationship with them. We believe in their business model and the training they provide, so it made sense to choose them to ensure we were complying with legislation.
We also arranged for them to use our company premises, as our upstairs room is spacious and comfortable- ideal for both the practical elements of the day and the educational aspect.
What’s the emergency first aid at work training like?
Our experience of first aid training was memorable, engaging and enjoyable whilst remaining professional, practical and productive.
Over the course of the day we were given a presentation on each aspect of first aid to be covered, then we performed hands-on practical exercises in our pairs, before being examined on them.
During the one-day course we covered CPR, how to treat an unconscious casualty, shock, minor injuries, wounds and bleeding, burns, fractures, epilepsy, diabetes and anaphylaxis, plus many more.
Following the practical examinations there was a written test to complete to ensure we had understood everything that we had been taught.
We did it!
We were delighted to find out we scored 100% on the day, meaning The Marketing People are going above current legislations for first aid provisions at work.
