We cover the following topics;

✅ What is First Aid for Mental Health?
✅ Identifying Mental Health conditions
✅ Providing advice and starting a conversation
✅ Stress
✅ Mental Health conditions
✅ Drugs and alcohol
✅ First Aid for Mental Health action plan
✅ First Aid for Mental Health in the workplace

Paediatric First Aid

Paediatric First Aid is a course for those who need to identify and manage emergency situations, or those who need to manage minor everyday occurrences when looking after young children.

The course is designed to give participants the knowledge and skills needed to treat children when they suffer knocks or bruises in everyday play, as well as provide support and attention until professional help arrives in those more serious situations.

We offer a 1 day course, or you can choose 2 sessions over the course of two days.

Furthermore, to offer a more flexible option, the Paediatric First Aid training course can be taken as a blended option.

Fire Safety Act 2005

We are often asked many questions surrounding the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and what businesses are required to do.

These include:

  • Carrying out a Fire Risk Assessment
  • Consider who may be at risk
  • Reducing risks
  • Providing general Fire precautions
  • Protection around flammable and explosive materials
  • Creating an emergency plan
  • Review your findings to all of the above

Fire Safety Act 2021

The Fire Safety Act 2021 was brought in to amend the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

It extends provisions to the following parts of multi-occupied residential buildings:

  • the building’s structure, external walls and any common parts. The external walls include doors or windows in those walls, and anything attached to the exterior of those walls, e.g. balconies and cladding.
  • all doors between the domestic premises and common parts.

Under Article 3 of the FSO, the “responsible person” of a premise (either a building or any part of it) is the person who has control of the premises (“the Responsible Person”), which may include building owners, leaseholders, or managers.

We would suggest familiarising yourself with both the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the new The Fire Safety Act 2021 if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to our team on 01935 473575.
