Children’s Safety Week

Child Safety Week/ first aid training

Children’s Safety Week – 5th June

According to ROPSA “children under the age of five years are more at risk from an accident in the home than anywhere else. Many of these accidents are preventable.” However, life rarely runs to plan and a moment’s distraction can provide the perfect opportunity for a child to do exactly what you don’t want; it is then that you may need to administer first aid.

Chris Ivey, our Consultant Director for Health and Safety, has a daughter currently attending an after school “babysitting” training course and he was very happy to note that this included a paediatric first aid element, because treating a child and an adult require different skills.
