PEACE OF MIND FOR THE EMPLOYER THE CARER AND THE CLIENT

IMPROVING FIRST AID COMPLIANCE AND CAPABILITY

 

 

PEACE OF MIND: When we put our children into a nursery or into the care of a nanny or child-minder, we presume they'll be safe and looked after. And if an accident were to happen, we expect that the trained staff will know exactly what to do. When something goes wrong and a child is not cared for appropriately, it's ultimately the reputation of the brand or company that suffers and not the individual child-minder or nanny.

 

THE REALITY: First aid trained people suffer skill fade, in fact they start to forget stuff the moment that the course ends. A real emergency might just be the most terrifying and overwhelming situation that they've ever experienced and even with the support of other teachers, nobody can predict what actions they might take or forget to take.

 

Until now; there has been no real alternative; but our unique Emergency step-by-step guides  provide a practical and measurable improvement to your HSE compliance, reducing your responsibility to facilitate the retention of skills and it mitigates your overall liability and risk.

 

They work by helping the user to unlock knowledge and ensures that they will rapidly carry out the correct actions, competently, with confidence and without omission, first-time, every-time.

 

Our system is so simple that a 12 year old can use it to start saving a life in under 60 seconds and it provides both you and your parents with the peace of mind that everything that can be done will be done. It’s an easy system to integrate and requires no additional training or time away from work. The books are self explanatory, just issue them to your first aiders and ask them to familiarise themselves with the new system.

 

HSE COMPLIANCE: Everybody should learn first aid and so in an effort to demonstrate corporate responsibility and compliance with HSE guidance, schools, nurseries and agencies provide first aid trained staff. Great, you've ticked the box. However: the employer or agency remains responsible for making adequate provision for facilities, equipment, time and resources to enable the first-aider to keep up to date. You remain responsible for the capability of the first-aider. So if they do something wrong, fail to carry out the correct action or worse, do something harmful; then you as the employer will be liable.

 

  • Your current first aid arrangements; do not guarantee even the medium term competence or capability of the first-aider.
  • As soon as the course ends, legal responsibility for revision, maintenance of skills and the ultimate performance of the first-aider is passed to the employer. A first aid qualification is just like a vehicle MOT; valid on the day of issue, but if your brake lights fail while the certificate is valid, the owner will be held responsible and accountable, not the garage who conducted the MOT, or in this case, the company that provided your first aid training.
  • First aid is ordinarily taught in a benign classroom environment. This does not and never could prepare the first-aider for the potentially overwhelming emotional impact of a real emergency.
  • Paediatric first aid is not just CPR and basic bleeding breaks and burns. It includes a wide range of medical conditions and sometimes complex variations of a condition that requires rapid diagnosis and rapid treatment. Without constant revision and practice, your current first aid training arrangements do not adequately prepare lay people to retain sufficient knowledge to effectively deal with these sometimes complex situations.
  • Under the pressure of a real medical emergency, nobody could predict what information the first-aider might remember, what wrong action they might perform or what they might fail to do.
  • The first-aider may be protected by the “law of the good Samaritan” because after all, doing something is probably better than doing nothing. However; where it can be proven that the employer did not adequately assess the risk or indeed, where the employer did not make adequate provision for facilities and equipment or time and resources to enable the first-aider to keep up to date, simply having  a “qualified” first-aider on site will not necessarily deliver corporate protection for the business.
  • Our Ambulance Service is under constant pressure and unreasonable demand, so increasingly; there will be times when expert help might not be 10, 20 or even 40 minutes away. Therefore; providing your first-aiders with a system that works, which unlocks their knowledge and that improves their competence and confident to deliver extensive life saving skills, is more important today than it ever was.

 

OUR BENEFITS: Our system is easy to integrate and requires no additional training or time away from work because the books are self explanatory. You can simply issue them to your teachers or nominated first aid personnel and ask them to familiarise themselves with the new system and update your risk assessment.

 

  • Our guides help the first-aider to focus and unlocks knowledge when they need it most; during an actual emergency. First aid books, manuals and apps CAN NOT do this.
  • Our Emergency guides help the first-aider to diagnose and to take appropriate actions for often difficult to recognise adult and paediatric conditions and emergencies that might otherwise have gone unnoticed.
  •  Our guides provide peace of mind for the employer, the first-aider and the casualty, that everything that can be done, will be done.
  • Making our guides available reduces the need for revision and reduces your responsibility to facilitate the retention of skills. It ensures that the first-aider will carry out the correct action, without omission, competently and with confidence for over 40 otherwise complex medical emergencies.
  • Provided that you make it mandatory for every first-aider to carry a pocket sized book on their person and there is a step-by-step book in every first aid box, you can guarantee robust and full compliance with 2015 first aid guidelines, which reduces your overall liability.
  • When your first-aiders knowledge lets them down and it inevitably will, our unique step-by-step guides won’t. It is a proven concept, tested on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan for over a decade. Compliant with International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation, American Heart Association, European Resuscitation Council and UK Resuscitation Council first aid guidelines 2015.

WHEN THE FIRST AIDERS KNOWLEDGE LETS THEM DOWN

OUR UNIQUE STEP-BY-STEP GUIDES WON'T

 

Around 25,000 under-fives are rushed to UK A&E departments ever year after being accidentally poisoned and more than 140,000 people die every year who could have been saved had they received effective first aid.

 

A five-year-old was eating lunch at School when he began to choke. While someone should have been on hand to administer blows to the back, the Heimlich, or CPR, the situation was fraught with panic and emotion, nobody had either the confidence or competence to provide effective help. He collapsed. An ambulance was called to the scene and he was rushed to hospital. Sadly, it was already too late. Shortly after arriving at the hospital, He was pronounce dead.

 

There are certain people in society who are not medical professionals, but who we rely on to be capable of providing effective and immediate help during a medical emergency. These people include school teachers, nursery workers and people who have specific workplace roles as a trained first aider. We expect them to be confident and competent in their skills. When their actions or inaction falls short of our expectations, we often feel let down, vulnerable or even angry. Angry to the point of bringing a law suit.

 

In reality; most people will do their best, even when their best falls short of our expectations.  So we decided that we could help them to do more, to unlock their knowledge, to guide them step-by-step, so that even if the worst happened and the casualty didn't survive, both the first aider, their employer and the family of the casualty could be reassured that everything that could have been done, had been done...
