Starfish First Aid Training
If someone at your workplace or home suffered a significant injury, would you know what to do?
If it was you that was hurt, do you trust that someone else would have the confidence to step in?
Having someone who is first aid trained at your place of work (or at home) is not only the law but it can completely change the outcome of an accident or injury – it could even save a life.
Should the worst happen, the cost to a person’s life and the owner’s business can be devastating – both in terms of financial compensation and damage to reputation. Failing to have competent First-Aider in a place of work can also mean your insurance policy is invalid.
For individuals, a serious accident can mean time off work and complete disruption to daily life. With early intervention and proper first aid response, long-term injury can be greatly reduced, and the chances of a full recovery increased.
If you work by yourself then it’s perhaps even more important to have procedures and training in place so that you know what to do if you get hurt.
We know that it’s difficult enough working by yourself.It can be lonely, you have no-one to bounce ideas off, or talk to them about your weekend, but perhaps what’s more worrying is if you get hurt whilst by yourself at work – would you know how to manage this without anyone there to help?
From minor injuries like a twisted ankle, burn or sprain, to something more serious, if you are a lone worker, not only is it a very sensible thing to know how to handle these issues, but did you know that it’s also essential according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines?
