Where is your Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)?

Where is your Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)?

Posted on: Thursday 12th May 2016

Where is your nearest Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)? Could your workplace benefit from one?  In the UK there are over 30,000 cardiac arrests a year outside of hospital where the emergency medical services attempt to resuscitate the casualty; Less than one in ten causalities survive to be discharged from hospital (The British Heart Foundation). Defibrillation is the best way to treat a Cardiac Arrest; if defibrillation is achieved within the first three minutes the chances of survival increase to above 70%. Is your organisation prepared?  Our Workplace first aid training courses provide all attending candidates with a general overview of how an AED operates. We also offer a 4 hour AED training course designed for those who wish to gain a greater understanding of how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) which can be found in many public and workplaces. Visit our Online Store or to find out more about AED Training click here   Should you wish to consider purchasing an AED for your business or organisation we can provide advice, guidance and costs. For more information please call 0300 4 666 999 or email sales@firstaid.org.uk.

St Andrew's First Aid Training and Supplies LTD is a Social Enterprise

St Andrew's First Aid Training and Supplies LTD is a Social Enterprise

Posted on: Thursday 12th May 2016

Formed in 2012 St Andrew’s First Aid Training and Supplies Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of St Andrew’s First Aid Charity. Benefiting from over 130 years of expert experience in delivering first aid services, our social enterprise is recognised as an industry leader and principal supplier of first aid, health and safety training and supplies sales in Scotland. Since 2012 we have trained over 80,000 candidates, with over two thirds being returning customers. By using our services, you are helping one of Scotland’s oldest charities continue to deliver its vision that no-one should die or suffer because they needed first aid and didn’t get it. For over 100 years, these highly skilled volunteers have been taking care of people and saving lives in Scotland. All profits that are delivered by St Andrew’s First Aid Training and Supplies Ltd are gift aided back to the parent charity (St Andrew’s First Aid), allowing them to continue with their essential first aid provision and educational programmes for communities in Scotland and beyond. Last month our membership with Social Enterprise Scotland meant we were able to attend The Holyrood Election Conversation & Social Enterprise Manifesto Launch in Edinburgh. "The event presented an extremely interesting and informative debate on how Social Enterprises in Scotland should be better recognised, supported and developed.  Events such as these are integral to the development of the third sector. Our ties with Social Enterprise Scotland provide the platform for our voice to be heard prior to decisions being made at a government level within our sector.” Jim Dorman, Operations and Policy Director, St Andrew’s First Aid Training and Supplies Ltd.
