Free First Aid Webinars to the Public
Published: 04 March 2021
Milton Keynes based healthcare training and solutions provider ECG are offering the public the chance to gain first-aid knowledge with their range of free webinars.
The series of seven free webinars will take place online during March and April covering topics such as ‘How to deal with a choking casualty’ and ‘Introduction to first aid for new parents’ to name a few (full list of webinars below).
With more people working from home than ever before, access to a trained first aider has become less and less, leaving many people without any kind of first aid experience or support to call upon in an emergency.
ECG Clinical Director Sophie McCracken said “We believe that having some first-aid knowledge is such a valuable tool to have in all walks of life, and we are really excited that our free webinars can give this opportunity to everybody.
“When working in a larger workplace whether it be an office, school, or retail outlet, you have a least one designated first aider, but what about small businesses, parents at home with children and those that work from home. Lockdown has significantly increased the number of people working from home, so it is more important than ever to have some first-aid knowledge.
“We are covering a variety of first aid topics, but the one I am most passionate about is the new parents one. I have only just come back from maternity leave as my little one is still only 4-months old, but when she was 5 weeks old, she choked on milk. Thankfully, because of my background as a paramedic and the training I deliver, I successfully cleared the obstruction with back slaps. We went to hospital to be checked and all was well, but it could have had a very different ending if I didn’t know what to do so I feel quite passionate about getting this training across to other new parents.”
