First Aid can save lives

Does my business need this?

The Health Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all construction sites to have:

    • a first aid box with enough equipment to cope with the number of workers on site.
    • an appointed person to take charge of first aid arrangements.
    • information telling workers the name of the appointed person or first aider and where to find them. A notice in the site hut is a good way of doing this.

We can come to you!

Learning first aid is a skill that will give you the ability to deal with medical emergencies whether they occur be it at home, in the street or at work.

If you work in the construction industry there is a higher risk of accidents happening on building sites due to the nature of the work. Having first aiders on site could be the difference between life and death for a victim if a medical emergency occurred.

These charts show the most common accidents that occur on building sites and the most common cause of death and serious injury. By far the most common cause of death is falls from height, these falls can also lead to serious injury so being able to respond immediately to these accidents can save lives and stop the injury from worsening. Falls from height can involve serious breaks, bleeds, head and spinal injuries as well as shock. Being able to deal with these injuries on the spot before the ambulance arrives could mean saving someone’s life, for example someone who stops breathing only has about 4 to 6 minutes before their brain cells begin to die, starting CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) will keep them alive until the paramedics arrive with AED machines and further help. Serious bleeds need to be stopped immediately within 5 minutes otherwise the victim may bleed to death. It will take longer than this for an ambulance to arrive so the actions of the first aider are really significant.

“We have used the company for many years now to provide first aid training for all our staff. The courses are very informative and because they are done in a fun and realistic manner staff remember what they have been trained in when it really counts and not just for a certificate. On top of this I know that I am also getting a day of team building because of the way the courses are delivered. I would recommend them to you unreservedly”
