Our continuing commitment to improving the training of our officers has been further established this week with several new officers passing their First Responder First Aid Qualifications.
We are working in conjunction with several of our clients to ensure that our security staff are fully up to date with the latest first aid techniques and practices through organisations such as The Red Cross and St John Ambulance.
Security officers are often the first person that will be approached for assistance and when you consider that we usually provide a 24/7 presence it makes perfect sense that these officers should be trained to offer care and assistance as first responders.
We are proud to report that the attendance and attitudes of our officers have been praised on several occasions by the course trainers. This is welcoming news as it shows officers are making the most of the chance to improve their own skills and qualifications rather than seeing the courses as an unnecessary chore. Whilst both clients and Chamberlains Security undoubtedly benefit from this additional training it is refreshing to listen to the comments of the officers who also benefit highly from the courses. Officer Chris Phillips for example stated that “not only does the training give me additional confidence at work; it is also something that can be used at home in the event of an emergency”
With accidents being something that are unfortunately a part of our lives, it is beneficial to ensure that as many people as possible receive some sort of First Aid Training; you never know when it will be needed.
For more information on training and courses available in your area please contact your local training provider and together we can try to make sure that next time there is an accident there is also someone that is trained and ready to offer assistance.
