Emergency Response Training Ltd based in Canberra House on Doncaster Sheffield Airport business park, has completed the first phase of restructure and diversification with three new complimentary divisions. Emergency Response Training Ltd remains the parent company and continues to manage ER Training, maintaining the high-quality training portfolio their customers have become accustomed to.

Adding two new divisions, ER Fire Safety which will provide a full range of fire safety services including fire extinguisher supply and servicing, fire risk assessments, fire alarm and emergency lighting installations, testing and servicing and ER Safety Supplies, an on-line safety equipment shop, stocking a wide range of quality products from defibrillators, first aid consumables to fire related equipment, signage and personal protective clothing.

Managing Director Debbie Pearson said “We have a loyal customer base who recognise the quality of our training and customer service. We have looked to the future by diversifying and expanding the business, deciding the best way forward was to provide our customers with the option of a “one stop shop” for all their Health and Safety requirements with the same ethos and customer service they have come to expect from us.”

“We presently have sufficient members of staff to administer and manage the expansion after investing in staff training and development and employing Julie White as our Fire Safety Technician, we will hopefully be looking to increase the number of employees as the businesses establish themselves.

Following public consultation, the CQC have issued guidance on how performance ratings should be displayed and have developed display material.

People using health & care facilities can expect to start seeing CQC ratings on provider websites as well as across premises, public entrances and waiting areas with effect from 1st April 2015.

Providers who have already been rated will have 21 days from 1st April 2015 to comply.

Food Allergens Awareness Training Course – Food Standards Agency sets new rules

food pic 2

From December 2014 the law requires consumers to be given the correct information on food allergens under the Consumers Regulations 2011.

Food allergies and intolerances can cause severe adverse reactions and food handlers have a legal responsibility to ensure that the food they serve is safe to eat.

Failure of food businesses to provide accurate allergen information could result in enforcement action being taken by local authority environmental health departments and possible criminal charges being brought to court.

We have launched a 3 hour Food Allergen Awareness Training course which is designed to provide businesses and their employees with the appropriate information to protect consumers in accordance with their legal obligations.

Training Course content;
• Differences between allergy and intolerance/effects on the human     body
• Symptoms of an allergic reaction
• Food safety law and regulations on employers and employees
• Allergen control in manufacturing
• Information and labeling
• Catering and what you need to know
• Menu’s

Course fee is £220.00 plus vat for up to 20 candidates.

Workplace Defibrillators

g5-open

Does your workplace need a Defibrillator (AED)?

It’s a question commonly asked  and with the launch of the new Cardiac Science G5 Defibrillator (AED) we wanted to give you some basic facts;

  • Around 60,000 people have a cardiac arrest each year outside of hospital
  • That’s about 200 people dying every day. More than a quarter of the deaths occur in people who are younger than 75
  • It can take up to 8 minutes for the emergency services to arrive
  • The chance of survival drops 10% with every minute that passes with no CPR or defibrillation.
  • You can’t shock someone that does not need it, defibrillators only shock when needed.
  • Research shows that an AED in the workplace can improve survival by up to 60%
  • ‘On site’ defibrillators CAN save lives and they need not be complicated!

We recommend the Cardiac Science G5 as it carries out self tests, has 4 year battery warranty, 7 year unit warranty and can be used totally automatic or semi automatic with clear voice prompts that even novices can use. (training is recommended by the Resuscitation Council)

Workplace Defibrillators: Starter Packs available including G5 Defibrillator, Carry Case and Ready Pack for £1250.00

Training courses start at £220.00* for up to 10 delegates

CAN YOU AFFORD NOT TOO?

*Accommodation and mileage may apply. All prices subject to vat

A recipe for safety

 

Health and safety in food and drink manufacture

A recipe for safety is for everyone in the industry, including workers, supervisors, managers, directors, health and safety professionals and health and safety representatives. The guidance covers the main health and safety hazards in the food and drink industries and gives practical advice on how to manage the associated risks. It provides a ‘one-stop shop’ reference document with links to more detailed guidance.

The food and drink industries comprise around 30 different manufacturing sectors such as bakeries, meat and poultry processing, drink manufacture, dairy processing, fish processing, chilled food production, vegetable processing and grain milling / animal feeds.

The previous edition was published in 2005. This latest edition has been revised by HSE and a working group of the Food and Drink Manufacture Health and Safety Forum. So, not only has it been updated, but this time it has been written by the industry for the industry. This means that the content is even more relevant and accessible to all those working in the food industry. This edition also has an increased focus on occupational health, which is a very important focus for the food industry.
