First Aid Training

Monday, June 14th 2021

Some of the staff and volunteers spent 3 days on a First Aid course delivered by Golbourn Training Services. It was an intense few days with all kinds of topics covered from dealing with cuts and scrapes to allergies and head injuries. Some of the course was taught outside and the necessary equipment was transported in the 'seed trolley', an odd sight for any visitors!

First Aid training has had to change due to Covid-19 and all of the new measures were explained at the beginning.

Each candidate had their own 'Resuscie Annie' to practice CPR on!

The use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) was also covered.

An additional topic of Catastrophic Bleeding was included and several scenarios were created at the Outdoor Classroom to test out newly learned life saving skills.

Our sincere thanks to Steve from GTS for bringing us up to speed with First Aid at Work.

In other news, Gerry had a special birthday recently, Many Happy Returns!
