Chance to brush up on first aid

THE nation’s leading first aid charity is encouraging employers in Lincolnshire to equip their staff with the vital skills which could be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.

Research by St John Ambulance has revealed 79 per cent of businesses have periods when there are no first aiders on the premises.

Through its bespoke on-site first aid courses, the charity can give employees the practical skills, knowledge and confidence they need to help prevent or deal with an emergency situation in the workplace.

Courses can be delivered on-site at businesses or in one of the organisation’s six training centres in Lincolnshire. For more information call 0844 324 5535 or visit www.sja.org.uk/onsite
