We provide qualified insured first aiders for the workplace and public events cover.
As events return during this pandemic, we maybe able to provide qualified first aid cover from first aiders, Paramedics and Doctors depending on your needs assessment submitted to us.
Employers in this pandemic may operate with reduced first aiders, so long as the reduced ratios meets their risk assessment i.e. their workforce numbers are also reduced.
However workplaces may find they lack the required numbers of trained first aid personal in this pandemic and wish to continue operating until such time their first aiders return from isolation or absences. We can provide temporary first aid cover at your workplace at short notice, thus reducing impact on your operations.
Such sectors utilising our first aiders include food manufacturing, warehousing, distribution and hospitality sectors. Business may also share their first aiders with another business, again we can offer qualified first aiders to multi-use-sites such as industrial estates, retail complexes and entertainment complexes. All our first aid at work certificate holders have extensive operational skills, that go beyond the standard first aid at work certificate requirements. This guarantees after a short induction to your operations that they can respond to first aid incidents across your venue selected. All staff are deployed to your venue with first aid equipment and will provide BLS with AED when on duty for your business. If you require short notice first aid staff then email us direct quoting FAW-Cover in the subject line to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Getting the right level of cover for your event.
There are many factors that affect the level of cover you will need at your event. Find out more with our comprehensive list of event guidelines below. We do expect event organisers when contacting us to have completed their event risk assessment and associated documents and submit these on initial contact, for us to be able to provide a quote.
How we decide what level of cover you need
These are some of the factors we will consider when looking at a quote for your event:
- Previous event data. For example, whether you’ve run the event before, and the previous casualty rates;
- The type of event. For example, whether it’s a classical music concert, a rugby match or equestrian event;
- Whether it is indoors or outdoors, and the type of venue;
- Seated or standing audience;
- Audience profile. For example, where it’s families, predominantly young people, or rival factions;
- Size of audience (a rough estimation of what you would need might be 2 first aiders per 1000 people)
- The kind of activity being carried out and whether it is high risk:
- Time of year (this is particularly relevant to outdoor events)
You will also need to provide us with a risk assessment of your event. You can find out more on how to create a risk assessment on the Health and Safety Executive’s website.
