Resuscitation Training - Why Basic Life Support Training Is Key In Any Organisation

Resuscitation training can be just as important as first aid training when it comes to teaching and informing your staff about health and safety. The decision to enact basic life support training in your workplace can literally mean the difference between life and death. This can be for staff, customers and any others who may come into your premises and be taken unexpectedly ill.

So what do we mean by 'basic life support'? BLS is medical care provided to those suffering from life-threatening injuries or illnesses before they can be given full medical care at a hospital. These basic skills don't require the pre-existing medical training or knowledge of paramedics and emergency medical technicians. With the right basic life support and CPR training, any bystander can help save a life. These skills are appropriate in all organisations as the risks of cardiac arrest or choking happening anywhere are unavoidable. However, they’re particularly suited to those working in any healthcare setting; as teachers, nursery/ day care staff and social workers; and those working in security. When these skills are taught and applied correctly, they can prolong a person's chances of survival by minutes. With ambulance and healthcare providers constantly fighting against the clock in such cases, those extra minutes could be the difference between life and death. A good training provider will be able to provide training in basic life support and the use of defibrillators in cases of cardiac arrests. This will not only make your staff feel more confident and safer, but it also demonstrates the commitment that your organisation has to health and safety.
