This morning at The Business Village 25 highly engaged tenants and visitors joined us to hear one of the most informative First Fridays networkers we’ve held on; “How you can save a life and how first aid training can benefit you, your business and your clients”.

During the presentation Joseph demonstrated:

  • How to save a life.
  • Several essential first aid skills that everybody should know.
  • Discussed the benefits of everyone being trained in First Aid.

During the Q&A session tenants and visitors heard about the many benefits of having a trained First Aider in your workplace, including:

  • What to do if someone was to stop breathing in front of you?
  • Or started violently fitting?
  • What if the ambulance was at least 10 minutes away?
  • Did you know ambulances have no target response time and can take up to 120 minutes for calls they believe are ‘Cat 3’? That includes someone who is unconscious.

Having a manager and a member of staff trained in First Aid meets legal requirements, shows your business’ commitment to duty of care and ensures everyone’s safety in the case of an accident or emergency. Having your team take their First Aid course can help team building and teach everyone a life skill.
