First aid training workshops for schools

We should all know first aid right? So we have starting running first aid training workshops for schools as a method to increase the number of people who know some basic first aid.

Our 6 hr First Aid Workshops are aimed at preteens -tween’s  aged 7-11.  Workshops are designed to teach basic life saving first aid skills to children in a  fun informative manor.

Often being at home with parents, careers or guardians,  preteens may find themselves having the overwhelming task of acting as the “grown up” in a medical emergency- if their  parents, careers or guardian were to have an accident, or to be taken ill. This is where our training comes in , courses are designed to provide the skills and build confidence to help in these types of situations.

The 6 hour workshop are broken down into 60 minute Bite size First Aid Sessions covering the following:

Scene safety

Calling for emergency help

Casualty assessment

CPR

Airway management including choking and vomiting

Control of bleeding.

After each session children will receive a worksheet, the worksheets are designed  to improve their knowledge and understanding of the subject taught on that particular session. Worksheets contain useful information word searches and First Aid Questions.

All Trainers & Assistants have current DBS  Certificates.

If you are interested in our first aid training workshops for schools, or any of our training give us a call on 0800 242 5210 or email us on info@lazarustraining.co.uk

First aid training onsite London

So you need first aid training onsite London? Well that’s ok, we can help. Our first aid training is well know for its practical nature, our #trainforreal ethos. Our Essex training centre is set up for our scenarios, all the way up to a crashed car and bicycles, but if you need first aid training onsite in London- don’t worry we can come to you.

Whichever of our first aid training courses your workplace requires, we can bring our “hands on” practical training to your workplace. Not only does this remove the problems of asking people to travel to training, but it also means we can run scenarios in the delegates working environment. Now, obviously that takes some planning, but the value of your delegates rehearsing their responses, in their actual workplace is vast.

“Learning in context increases long term retention”- How we learn by Benedict Carey.

We have run our scenarios in office, factories, car parks, stairwells and basically anywhere the delegates might have to face a real situation.

“Since we cannot predict the context in which we’ll have to perform, we’re better off varying the circumstances in which we prepare”- How we learn by Benedict Carey

If there ever was such a think as a “typical” course, then it includes us running some skills in the classroom environment, but then we’re off to scenarios.

All are adapted to reflect the actual working environment, first aid equipment that is available and even in house matters such as how to call for an ambulance etc.

Our Emergency First Aid at Work and First Aid at Work courses both contain training scenarios, with the 3 day FAAW course covering a wider range of situations such as illnesses which can be faced by first aiders in larger workplaces such as offices.

So which course might you need? We have a first aid needs calculator on our website which can generate a report which may help you with your due diligence.

Of course you could always give us a call on 0800 242 5210 or email our office, either way ask for Sam or Kelly who front up our first aid training onsite London workplace first aid department.

 

 

First Aid in Remote Locations- course feedback

First Aid in Remote Locations

Around a month ago, I received an email from BECTU, offering members a First Aid in Remote Locations course, which had been subsidised by Creative Skillset. Being a film maker and having a particular interest in working in hazardous environments, there was no way I was letting an incredible opportunity like this pass me by.

The course took place in the house and gardens of the beautiful East Hampstead Park and fortunately for us, we had decent weather. There were 12 people on the course, all working in the film industry and all with a variety of skills and talents. The training was run by Lazarus Training whose belief and focus was that we should ‘‘train for real’, meaning that training must reflect the reality of what people may actually face and the resources they may have access to.

The first day consisted of getting to know the basics, such as pressure points, and learning about the items in our first aid kit & how to use them. I was most fascinated by the Tourniquet – which became a vital tool in many of the scenarios we faced.

For the first situation we faced, Leroy played the role of the unlucky casualty. He played his part so realistically, that I felt quite weak at the knees. I was completely engaged throughout. The session ended when we were able to help in saving Leroy’s life after he ‘accidently’ stabbed himself in the leg with a knife.

On the second day, (even better than the first), we had to deal with six scenarios, some in groups of two and some in larger groups. We faced everything from campfire explosions to Leroy falling out of a tree and Paul (another trainer) shooting himself in the leg. One of the most fascinating parts of the day was learning how to make a stretcher out of coats, emergency splints and what to do if someone falls unconscious.

The final day was even more absorbing and we were faced with travel health, unconscious casualties in complete darkness, hypothermia, spotting the signs of heat exhaustion before it becomes Heat Stroke and rescuing casualties from car accidents.

My fellow course members were all fascinating people in their own right, with such a diverse range of talents and film skills. Working with them made the course even more enjoyable and I very much hope that I get to work with all of them sometime again in the future.

First Aid in Remote Locations group

At the beginning of the course, I was enthusiastic, but slightly apprehensive; by the end I was confident, a little less scared of blood and completely exhausted.

I must give a massive thank you to BECTU and Creative Skillset; without them, I wouldn’t have been able to have taken the course and to Lazarus for their training, endless skills and knowledge. I never knew that First Aid training could be so rewarding and enjoyable.

Workplace first aid training requirements

Workplace first aid training requirements are something many businesses forget to consider or are unsure of. Basically workplace first aid training is often a requirement of even the smallest of workplaces, which must make arrangements for action in event of an emergency, provide a first aid kit and possibly provide trained workplace first aiders.

The focus is now on the employer to decide their own requirements following an assessment of their workplace, workforce and activities. To assist with this assessment you may want to use our handy first aid requirements calculator, which can be accessed by clicking the logo below.

Workplace first aid requirements calculator
Workplace first aid requirements calculator

The calculator asks a small number of questions about your workplace and work activities and then generates a report which may act as the framework for your own assessment. For many workplaces the report will be sufficient to decided on your workplace first aid training requirements, but it can be updated and amended as required by the user. The report is available in PDF format and information is provided on what first aid training, if any, is required.

Each report is different, but it is likely to refer to courses such as First Aid at Work courses, Emergency First Aid at Work, Basic Life Support and Defibrillator training sessions.

You might find it useful to read our article about the due diligence for first aid training that employers should consider before selecting their training provider.

Our range of workplace first aid courses meet the Health and Safety Executive recommended content for first aid courses, covering every ones’ needs. We run First Aid at Work courses, Emergency First Aid at Work, Basic Life Support and Defibrillator training sessions.

Lazarus Training provides a number of workplace first aid courses, all run in a highly practical and interactive way, by training staff with relevant qualifications and experience. All our first aid courses are aimed at making you confident to provide first aid at work when required.

 

These are supported by our more general health and safety courses, such as Fire Marshal’s and our popular Fire Safety- Basics.

Teenaider first aid training is back.

Teenaider first aid training is aimed at teenagers and other young people who may find themselves providing emergency medical care without immediate adult supervision. As teenagers discover their independence they might find themselves being the “grown up” in a medical emergency- perhaps a friends has had an accident, or a parent or carer has been taken ill, then it would be down to the teenager to summon help and potentially provide basic life saving help. Our Teenaider courses are designed to provide the skills and confidence that might be needed to help in these types of situations.

As with all the first aid training provided by Lazarus Training we believe training must be practical and aimed at the real life situations the delegates might face, two principles we sum up as #trainforreal and “first aid training is a contact sport”. On this course your teenager will receive instruction in:

Scene safety

Calling for emergency help

Casualty assessment

CPR

Airway management including choking and vomiting

Control of bleeding

All training is conducted in a life like manner and is designed to build the confidence of the teenager and ensure the principles are firmly in mind by the end of the course.

The main session is 3 hours long, with additional 3 hour sessions available for those that wish to really explore the topic and their skills and reactions. The training is currently run at our Leigh on Sea venue, but we can travel to groups such as schools, scouts etc.

All training is conducted by qualified instructors, most with a background in the emergency services. Training involves some physical activity such as laying on the floor and clothing may get slightly dirty. For full details of what should be worn, ask our office team for our “You want to be a Teenaider” leaflet.

Our Teenaider first aid training is normally run during school holidays, but can also be arranged for weekends on request.
