First Aid Training For Security Professionals
Continual Professional Development For Security Professionals. Security CPD Global Is One Of The UK’s Leading Security Specific CPD Providers.
First Aid Training For Security Professionals
First Aid is a very important part of everyday life, let alone within the Security Industry, who are most often, than not, First Persons on the Scene to either Minor or Major incident, this is why First Aid Training For Security Professionals is so essential as CPD.
Security Personnel should now hold a minimum of Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) in compliance with SIA Regulations that are now in force across the UK, however, is this really sufficient for the work they are doing or the likely injuries they may face, especially those operating within Major Events such as Glastonberry, O2, Wembley, and other such Festivals.
Over the Covid 19 Pandemic Period, we have seen a rise in Domestic Violence, Demonstrations, Violent Assaults, and Mental Health Issues, some of which have led to the sad loss of life, therefore our response to this rise, as Clients, Owners, and Security Operatives should be to encourage the upskilling our teams, to encompass those incidents that they may well face in the future.
By establishing robust, innovative, and dedicated training providers, that clearly understand the Security Professional’s role in contemporary Britain, we can forge ongoing relations reducing costs and implementing the relevant changes to enhance the effectiveness of our entire team, through the implementation of Continuous Professional Development held on a regular basis which enhances knowledge, skills, and professionalism which will be noted by clients and the general public.
Dispelling Myths within First Aid
Fact-checking is now a popular modern term so we thought it prudent to provide you with access to those that either know or are the Regulatory Authorities relating to First Aid: Please always follow the guidelines as laid down by your Awarding Body and if you feel they are wrong, email their lead EQA and explain your concerns, quoting any relevant Legislation or Guidelines from Official Sources.
The PDF below will provide you with links to Resuscitation Council and other guidelines.
We are pleased to be Members of the Mental Health Charter, which we support and will be providing further information in the next couple of weeks and months – we will also be putting some information files relating to Mental Health within the Security Industry.
For more advanced Medical needs Celox is a world leader in the provision of Trauma anti-coagulants stopping life-threatening bleeding is recognized as the most urgent need for emergency service personnel responding to trauma.
Severe blood loss makes it worse by causing clotting deficiency (ATC) and some patients will be on undisclosed anti-coagulant medication.
There may also be multiple patients to assess and treat at one incident, adding to the urgency.
Celox treatments for life-threatening bleeding are used by a wide range of military and civilian medical services.
Emergency First Aid within Close Protection
Whilst operating as a Close Protection Operative you should only consider F-POS(I)/FREC as the minimum and Para-Med/AEMT as the ideal level, although in the real world this would depend on budgets and there may only be one Para-Med for the entire team with the rest trained in F-POS(I) or FREC.
Defined as any area where there is structured Law Enforcement and reasonable access to Medical Services, however, some medical emergencies will still require immediate action and advanced knowledge to maintain the life of a principal whilst awaiting formal Hospital or paramedical assistance.
There are a number of illnesses or Injuries that will need attention and a significant amount of medical knowledge to sustain life and or reduce pain and discomfort whilst awaiting the ambulance crew.
Defined as being within a conflict area, or territory known for Armed Conflict which could be anywhere from Mexico City to Iraq or Afghanistan.
No, it really doesn’t need to be a formal War Zone to be Hostile, just the regular will and intent of criminals, Freedom Fighters or Terrorists to commit murder using armed aggression.
Civilian Hostile Environment
We are defining this as within a remote location, essentially the wilderness or remote countrysides such as the Highlands of Scotland, Islands of the South Pacific, or the Blue Mountains in Australia, as these places, amongst others can be so isolated that medical attention will require extreme effort to arrive on the scene and may well take several hours or even days. It could even be the National Park in Sussex if communications fail the environment is hostile for the casualty.
We will be adding more training providers
Axle Training – Provide F-POS(I) and Level 4 MIRA designed for Close Protection Operators both the UK and In Hostile Areas.
They provide FPOS (I) over the first three days or a combination course of FPOS (I), MIRA, and Paediatric first aid over the full five days at realistic prices with an interactive instructor and former Military Medic.
We chose the company name “REAL First Aid” for a reason. The best way to learn is to do it and the best way to do it is as realistically as possible. All of our courses take the theory out of the classroom and provide opportunities for candidates to apply knowledge and skills in realistic, work-related scenarios to develop true understanding.
Our Priority is Quality over Quantity – Skills before Numbers.
