FAIB IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE “IN SAFE HANDS AWARD” FOR CHILDCARE SETTINGS

FAIB IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE “IN SAFE HANDS AWARD” FOR CHILDCARE SETTINGS    

As people in the First Aid Industry are aware I have been involved for over 20 years and was Head of First Aid for the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) from 1995-2007. I have always been vocal and passionate about the numbers of people being trained in First Aid as well as wanting to raise the standards of First Aid training in the workplace.

I was asked to create The First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) by a number of Ex-HSE First Aid Training Providers in 2012 and it has now become a Nationally recognised name within the regulation of First Aid training.

I have recently been approached from stakeholders within the First Aid Industry about creating an Award for Childcare settings that recognises excellent staff knowledge within Paediatric First Aid.

I spoke to Paul Oates (Childcare Providers and Regulation) at the Dept. for Education regarding the creation of an Award and he said “Genuine award schemes designed to ensure that more people in childcare settings have the Paediatric first aid training they need so that they are able to deal with accidents and injuries for very young children are to be welcomed”.

“The Department of Education welcomes such schemes provided all are aimed at ensuring that staff in childcare settings are well trained and able to respond to emergencies quickly. I hope that the ‘In Safe Hands award’ scheme is successful in doing that”.

Following a number of discussions with interested parties within the First Aid Industry the First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) has now created the “In Safe Hands Award” – with the support of Flat Stan First Aid and Cardiac Science – to enable Nurseries, Pre-schools and Childminders to be recognised for strengthening their Paediatric First Aid skills and capabilities.
