Employees will be offered the chance to participate in free first aid training sessions run by the British Red Cross to mark National Learning at Work Day on 22 May.
Run by The Campaign for Learning charity, Learning at Work Day will focus on a number of areas promoting sustainability within the workplace, one of which being the importance of encouraging employees to learn skills for life.
British Red Cross First Aid Training is organising a series of free sessions throughout the UK to teach first aid. These events will offer the chance to learn essential skills such as CPR and how to treat an unconscious casualty, which could be used to save a life, either in the work place or in the wider community.
Anna Brown, head of customer services for British Red Cross First Aid Training said: "Ensuring that your employees learn first aid is so much more than just complying with your health and safety obligations.
"Encouraging people to learn a life skill, such as first aid, shows your commitment to the employee and also to the well being of your whole team. The confidence and motivation that it can give to these individuals is invaluable both in and out of the working environment."
