Staying up to date with First Aid
Staff at Express Autocare and Swift Car Care recently attended a one-day first aid course run by RTI Training Solutions at Pinnacle House in Peterborough.
Each of our branches has two first aiders, plus Suki Kassam who is DBS checked and has a paediatric first aid qualification.
According to Business Zone, up to 150,000 people die every year in the UK from injuries which could have been helped with first aid treatment.
Although these life threatening injuries may not be particularly common within the workplace, there are around 200,000 minor and major injuries in UK workplaces every year. Meaning that it’s important for a healthy workforce as well as complying with HSE legal requirements.
As part of our general Corporate Social Responsibility policy we’re happy to offer first aid support to charity event organisers who are in need of DBS checked cover. Please contact us to find out more.
