Be prepared for a cracking good Easter with St Andrew’s First Aid

With Easter on the horizon now is the perfect time to think about restocking your First Aid supplies and possibly even fitting in that essential First Aid course so that you are prepared for a cracking good time.

As families and friends get together for the Easter break it is important that you know what to do should an emergency happen.  Last year there were 10,135 reported injuries to employees in Scotland and over two million working days lost due to work related injury and ill-health.  In addition, a survey has shown that almost 80% of people lack the knowledge and confidence to carry out basic First Aid, perhaps unaware that with a target response time of eight minutes for the Scottish Ambulance Service, many treatable conditions could prove fatal without prompt on-the-spot action. People are losing sight of the need for basic First Aid skills which is putting unnecessary pressure on our emergency services whilst also putting individuals at risk.

We believe that no one should die because they needed First Aid and didn’t get it.  The First Aid courses provided by St Andrew’s First Aid provide the knowledge, education and confidence to deal with life’s little – and big – emergencies, including CPR.  Training is provided both within the community and at work, all courses are certificated and come with a Price Promise guarantee.
