First Aid

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to arrange to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate first aid training. However, having the correct first aid provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff!

Safeguarding / PREVENT duty

Updates and training are regularly arranged on the above areas and consider all current and planned legislation, such as new Acts that may be implemented in the future. This is so we can plan ahead and provide up to date assistance for all our clients.

The Training Trust’s contribution to PREVENT

The Training Trust has a responsibility to protect young people and vulnerable adults deemed to be at risk of any harm under the Safeguarding agenda. This is extended to all those who may be vulnerable to radicalisation.

The office for Security and Counter-Terrorism (OSCT), in the Home Office, works to counter the threat from terrorism. Their work is covered in the government’s counter-terrorism strategy CONTEST which is primarily organised around the following four key principles:

  • PURSUE: to stop terrorist attacks and acts of terrorism
  • PREVENT: to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism
  • PROTECT: to strengthen our protection against a terrorist attack or acts of terrorism
  • PREPARE: to mitigate the impact of a terrorist attack or acts of terrorism

The PREVENT principle has the following three national objectives:

  • Objective 1: to respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote it
  • Objective 2: prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support
  • Objective 3: work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation which we need to address
