First Aid Ready

Whole Efficiency North team trained to act effectively in an emergency

Our thanks to Denise Moorwood, Director of Pulse Medicare Training Ltd, for putting our team through a comprehensive 1-day training course in First Aid at Work on 2 separate days at our Collaboration Works head office in Sheffield.

Following our transition to agile working, with staff working flexible hours in the office, we recognised the need to offer training to the whole team to ensure a qualified First Aider is always on site.

The training has given everyone the confidence to react effectively in the event of an incident, injury or illness and to be more aware of safety and prevention of accidents. The skills and knowledge are not only useful in the office.  Training in how to assess an incident, get help, use a defibrillator, give CPR, pack large puncture wounds, treat serious injuries, choking, burns and shock, has given our team the confidence to step up and assist in an accident or medical emergency they may encounter in their everyday lives, to promote recovery, prevent the situation worsening, and preserve life. 

Within our culture of continuous learning and professional development, we believe that adopting this comprehensive approach to training - also offering all staff training in Health & Safety, Manual Handling and Fire Safety - will equip them with the skills and confidence to act responsibly and effectively.

We were pleased to welcome to join in with our team's training Darby Wallis-Cutts, Apprentice Design Manager with Devcom Ltd, whose office is also based within Collaboration Works.  

Chief of Corporate Services Jonathan Shaw commented: “Providing a safe working environment is paramount for EN. Giving all our employees the opportunity to learn potentially life-saving first aid skills that could be used in the workplace or in a social environment is an initiative we are proud to have put in place. We just hope no-one ever needs to use them!”
