Outdoor Emergency First Aid

At Evince we believe in making training relevant.  First Aid is learnt best when it is made bespoke.  And the context in which training takes place can reinforce learning.  Outdoor sports takes place in environments where applying first aid can be difficult.  Cold weather, bulky clothing, working far from assistance, can make successful first aid difficult.  At Evince we can help.  We will provide specific course material to match the hazards and risks in your sports or activity field.  We will help you practice in conditions to replicate likely scenarios you need to be prepared for.  We will expose the group to a full scale emergency exercise to test newly learned skills.  And to help you prepare for the reality of serious injury that goes along with the additional risks that outdoor sports and other activities carries, we will add a little blood to our staff role players to make training realistic and challenging.

Our course takes place over an action-packed two days.  It will be hard work but thoroughly worth it.  While we are looking at first aid topics we will also consider leadership/teamworking in an emergency situation and prevention planning.  But don’t just take our word for how good our outdoor first aid training is, read a testimonial from our last Outdoor Emergency First Aid course:

I have attended and received a great deal of first aid training through either work or my interest in outdoor pursuits. I can honestly say that the training delivered Richard, Diane and Nic from Evince was the best ever. Firstly, all instructors were hugely knowledgeable as demonstrated in their delivery, real life examples and how they answered our questions. Secondly, they brought with them a huge amount of training kit that we could practice with. There was absolutely no danger of not getting the chance to practice with a piece of kit, right down to (training) EpiPens and military bandages. We were also able to practice inserting an OP airway. Finally, the ratio of instructors to students was excellent meaning we never had to wait for the individual attention of one of the trainers. I left the course feeling very confident that if I was called to apply any of the techniques learnt I would be able to do so effectively.  Gareth B

Contact us today to discuss your group’s specific needs.  We can arrange training to meet your needs and plan the environment for that training.  Do you need to include a formal first aid qualification?  If so we can adjust the course programme to prepare you for the exam so that you ca gain a recognised qualification.  If you engage in activities in hazardous environments let appropriate first aid training act as an insurance policy so that you can enjoy your leisure time with confidence.

Remember, the higher the risk in your sport or outdoor activity the greater the chance that you will be exposed to an emergency that may prove life threatening or life changing for the casualty.  If it hasn’t happened yet, let us help you be prepared in case your luck runs out.

What will we be doing?

We will train you to be prepared for paediatric emergencies that could strike at any time.  Whilst such emergencies are thankfully rare we will raise your awareness to provide vital support while waiting for professional paramedic treatment.  We want you to be reassured that any steps you take will follow the right approach.  We will work with mannequins so that you can get hands-on experience.  Preparing to provide paediatric first aid necessarily requires a very different approach to supporting adults.  Approaches to urgently supporting adults you may have picked up over the years are very unlikely to help babies and children, in fact real harm could be done.  We will provide you with simple, appropriate treatments for babies and children.  We anticipate that we will de-bunk the odd myth as well.

Evince Training Limited is extremely proud to be an authorised centre offering AoFAQ Regulated First Aid Qualifications. The fact that our courses marked with (QCF) are regulated by Ofqual, the Government’s office for qualifications, gives you confidence in our attention to detail and commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest standards. You also have the reassurance that by choosing our regulated courses you have complied with the employers requirement to exercise ‘due diligence’ placed on you by the HSE.

what makes you differentWhat do you get at the end?

This is a regulated level 3 qualification and is ideal for anyone who works with or comes into contact with infants and children in their working or voluntary roles. It is also ideal for parents and families with young children who would like to learn first aid for their own peace of mind.

Further Training Available! The learner can progress to a range of qualifications with us including:

AoFAQ Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work
AoFAQ Level 2 Award in CPR and AED
AoFAQ Level 2 National Award in Safeguarding Children and Young People

Burns

Burnt handBurns are commonplace both at home and in the workplace. Around 175,000 people every year visit the accident and emergency department in hospitals for burns.

Although most people would consider temperatures of boiling water (100 deg.C) or more to cause burns, temperatures as low as 60 deg. C in children and 69 deg. C in adults can cause even full thickness burns.

Burns can be caused in many ways, the obvious ones are hot objects, liquids, etc.  However, less obvious causes include electrical, radiation, cryogenics (cold burns) and chemical burns.  Friction is another source of heat.  Motorcycle riders can experience burns as their clothing melts by heat generated through friction with the road.  Note: that frying oil is around 150C!

Temperatures as low as 60 deg. C in children and 69 deg. C in adults can cause even full thickness burns.

In every home, venue and workplace there will be the potential for burn injuries, how they are dealt with can be the difference between minor or major scaring and even life or death.

Did you know that a large number of people still believe that the correct treatment for burns is putting butter on it?  This of course cooks the injury even more by inhibiting cooling.

So how should you treat burns?

  • Stop the burning process quickly, removing casualty from  the source
  • Remove clothing or jewellery from affected area – but don’t try to remove anything stuck to burnt skin
  • Cool the burn with cool or lukewarm water for 10 to 30 minutes.  Do not use iced water, creams or greasy substances such as butter
  • Use clothing or blankets to keep the casualty warm, but keep affected areas clear
  • Cover the wound with clingfilm, it only binds with itself and will not stick to the wound.  It will prevent infection however. Ensure clingfilm is applied by unrolling it along the limb, rather than wrapping it around the limb. This approach will prevent swelling making the clingfilm becoming too tightly applied
  • Pain can be treated with paracetemol, follow normal manufacturer guidance.

Do Employers know if their first aid training is valid?

Do Employers know if their first aid training is valid?

FA020315Over a year ago the Health and Safety Executive published the GEIS3 guidance.  This contained some interesting points to Employers on selecting a first aid training provider.

Selecting a wrong training provider could result in the training being invalid and the employer falling foul of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.  Employers have different routes to select a suitable training provider this can be categorised into two main groups.

Group 1: Regulated Qualifications or qualifications from the VAS. An employer selecting a training provider from this group can be confident that the training will fulfil the employer’s duty under the First Aid regulations.
Group 2:  These are basically any other training providers.  Here, the employer must carry out a comprehensive assessment of the training provider concerning quality assurance, trainer experience, qualification course structure and a checklist of several pages of due diligence before using the training provider.  Get this wrong and the qualification may not be HSE compliant, resulting in the employer failing to meet their statutory duties under the first aid regulations.

Evince Training has achieved AOFA registered training centre status.  Your investment in quality training through Evince Training ensures that the training provided is of high quality and of equal importantance meets the duties under first aid regulations.

Your training fee is a small price to pay for employer’s peace of mind!

AoFAQ Logo for literature 280So what is Group 1?  This first group consists of either the VAS or a Training Provider approved by an Ofqual recognised Awarding Organisation (AO).  AoFA Qualifications is one such Awarding Organisation of over 20 AOs in this sector.  AOs are regulated by the government department Ofqual who in turn regulate the training providers.  More importantly from the employer’s viewpoint, by selecting a first aid training provider approved by an AO ensures that the qualifications are regulated and meets the first aid regulations.  Further, the employer does not need to carry out any due diligence before engaging the training provider.

So, why aren’t all training providers regulated by AOs?  As part of a government initiative of removing health and safety red tape, the first aid training market moved from being regulated by the HSE to an open market.  This move gives more choice to the employer but with the choice comes more responsibility to select a suitable first aid training provider.

For more details, please click here

Are there any drawbacks with Regulated Qualifications?  No, there is no due diligence for an Employer to carry out in selecting Evince Training.  Your fee includes the qualification certificate fee.  This ensures that the training provided is of high quality and, equally important, meet the duties required under first aid regulations. Evince Training charges reasonable prices, fair to you and us.  And it’s a small price to pay for an employer’s peace of mind!

CPR & AED (Short) Course

cpr-and-aed-shortThis is a 3 hour course.  Early defibrillation and CPR are vital in the chain of survival following a cardiac arrest. This course is able to provide learners with the knowledge and skills to operate the AED safely. It is aimed at members of the public who want to gain a basic knowledge of life-saving skill and the equipment that may be very close to hand as a crisis becomes apparent.

Remember, the national target for an ambulance’s attendance in a life-threatening condition is 8 minutes.  In the southwest area that target is met in 80% of cases.  A casualty will need to rely on a volunteer to step forward immediately before paramedic help can get to them.

What will we be doing?

We will provide specific training to help you provide urgent treatment to an unconscious and unbreathing casualty –  truly life-saving skills.

We’ll work with mannequins and AED equipment.  You will learn to assess the incident and the casualty, taking the steps needed to sustain life until professional paramedic support reaches the casualty.

What do you get at the end?

This short course carries no formal Award but a certificate of Attendance is provided.  What it provides is the confidence to act if a situation demands it.

Should you want to study to achieve an Award in this area we do provide HSE recognised/Ofqual accredited “Level 2 Award in CPR & AED (QCF)“- that’s valid for three years from the date of issue.  Click here for details of this course provided by Evince Training.
