We have just added a new range of outdoor steel defibrillator cabinets to our range of quality products. Public access defibrillators are vital to every community to help improve survival rates from sudden cardiac arrest in the UK. The cabinet chosen to store your defibrillator in is an important investment to ensure that it protects your defibrillator from environmental conditions so it is ready for use when needed. Many people have bought cheap and as in most cases had problems with poor quality locks, heater failure or finding that their cabinet does not have a heater at all!

The European Resuscitation Council have brought out new guidelines that will affect first aid training courses. There are some key changes that affect the way we will teach first aiders to treat a person suffering from severe bleeding, Asthma and Diabetes to name a few.

In 1974 there were 651 fatal injuries to employees at work. Since the introduction of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 the figure of fatal injuries at work has reduced to 92 in 2014/15. Although this is a big improvement 1 worker is 1 too many.

Did you know?

From 1 October 2013 the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) no longer approves training and qualifications for the purposes of first aid at work.

Training organisations who were formerly ‘Approved’ by HSE to deliver First Aid at Work Training can no longer claim to be HSE Approved or use their HSE Approval number.

An employer will need to undertake varying levels of due diligence (reasonable enquiry or investigation) into how they select a first aid training...

Early access and early defibrillation, along with effective CPR, give the best chances of survival for a patient who suffers a cardiac arrest.

Having a cPAD means installing a special cabinet on the outside wall of a building so that the automated external defibrillator (AED) inside can be accessible 24/7 to anyone in the vicinity who requires it. The cabinet should be safely installed without having a direct supply from mains electricity providing added reassurance once installed.

We are pleased to work with Parish Councils and will offer a full...

Many communities have equipped themselves with defibrillators that are available for members of the public to use in an emergency prior to arrival of the emergency services. The common term used is Community Public Access Defibrillators (cPAD).

It is well known that when a person collapses and is not breathing normally their life is at risk. In many situations a person will have suffered from a sudden cardiac arrest SCA. This means that their heart has stopped beating and without urgent medical assistance and first aid treatment chances of survival are very low indeed.

If you have a...

Employers should carry out an assessment of first aid needs to determine the number of staff required to be qualified in Emergency First Aid at Work or First Aid Work. In some circumstances staff may require the 3 day First Aid at Work course depending on a number of factors such as hazards identified, staff medical conditions or number of employees to name a few.

If you have a defibrillator on site or decide to provide one quality defibrillator training can make a big difference ensuring staff are confident and feel safe if they have to use a defibrillator for real. Effective, quality...
