Senator, a leading supplier of office furniture, has recently partnered with Lancashire Adult Learning (LAL) to train over 500 employees in life-saving skills.
The specialized team of first aid tutors from LAL worked closely with Senator to provide training sessions on how to deliver CPR and use a defibrillator in ‘first on scene’ emergency situations.
Less than one in ten people survive a cardiac arrest outside of a hospital, however, performing CPR can more than double the chance of survival. Anyone can learn basic emergency first aid skills in a short period of time which can make a huge difference to patient outcome.
Janet Nerenberg, Head of HR at Senator, expressed her gratitude for the initiative, stating; “This was a fantastic opportunity for us to support teams across our sites in learning more about CPR and the use of a defibrillator.
“We have defibrillators on all our sites, and I was amazed that a lot of people would still be nervous of using one of these in an emergency situation. Thanks to LAL, over 500 of our employees are now more confident and aware; a skill not just valuable in the workplace. I would highly recommend Craig and the team from LAL.”
Deborah Ormandy, Curriculum Leader for Health and Social Care with LAL, also expressed her admiration for the initiative and added, “Senator has shown such a huge commitment to health and wellbeing by providing training to so many of their employees!”.
LAL offers free first aid training to adults aged 19 plus living within Lancashire. Contact Craig Pollard at Craig.Pollard@NelsonGroup.ac.uk for more information or to book training.
This partnership is a clear indication of Senator’s commitment to the safety and well-being of its employees, and its efforts to create a more resilient and healthy workplace environment.
