Can they keep 5 crosses? Better still, can they keep them all?

The Importance of Emergency Response Training

Emergencies can happen to any of us at any time. When they do happen, knowing what to do in the aftermath can be critical.

All employees can benefit from knowing how to respond to bomb threats, civil unrest, suspicious items or active shooter situations, and the workplace becomes safer for everyone when people have a sound knowledge of how to deal with a medical emergency. In the right situation, Emergency Response eLearning courses could save lives.

Medical emergencies can strike without warning and can be distressing for all involved. When employees are properly trained, they are more likely to respond well in those crucial initial stages.

FAQ's

If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Medical emergencies are any sudden injury or illness that puts at least one person’s life or health at serious risk. They range from heart attacks to falls. It is important to know how to respond to medical emergencies: they happen without warning and every second of the immediate response makes a difference to the outcome.

You can plan for a medical emergency by making sure all staff are suitably trained and have the appropriate first aid equipment on hand. Responding calmly and quickly is vital. All organisations should have the required number of first aiders on site at all times to provide medical assistance until the emergency services arrive.

Most workplace injuries are caused by slips, trips and falls. Causes such as falls from height, electric shocks, allergic reactions and cuts are also common. It is important that all workplaces have medical supplies on site and first aiders trained to use them so they can respond appropriately to any workplace injuries.
