First Aid Training for Gresham Team

Gresham Wealth

In June 2021, all our team undertook a full day’s training course on first aid in the workplace.

The Covid-secure course covered what to do in an emergency, with a particular focus on cardiac arrest. This included practicing CPR on training Manikins as well as a demo on how to use a defibrillator. Other topics covered included burns, choking, bandages and the recovery position. 

The training was instigated as part of a move to ensure safety in the office at all times. With a number of our team members still working remotely, having every member of the team hold the certificate will help to ensure that a first aider is always present on site in case of an emergency relating to a member of staff, a client or a visitor.

Having undertaken the course, all of our team now all have their first aid certificate for the workplace. This is a qualification that lasts for three years, after which point, the plan is to have all members of the team renew.

Some practical steps that came out of the course that are useful for everyone to know included:

Familiarising yourself with the location of the nearest defibrillator in your most common locations – eg. home or work address. In the event of a cardiac arrest, the speed at which a defibrillator can be accessed and applied to the individual can make a significant difference on the chance of survival. HeartSafe.org.uk can be used to find the location of the nearest defibrillator according to your postcode.

Downloading the What Three Words app in case of needing to pinpoint your location to the emergency services.

Making sure the information on your smart phone relating to Medical Emergency and your own medical information is kept up to date, and also knowing how to access this on another person’s phone. This could help to identify a person’s health history, which could be useful to pass on to paramedics in the event of an emergency.

I am only in this position because of you. One of the best decisions I have ever taken going with GWM.

With great thanks for all your reassuring attention over the last year. It means more to me than I can express in a few words.

I just want to thank you and your team so very much for all you do for me throughout the year. It is a real comfort to know that my investments are in such capable hands. I literally couldn’t do it on my own.

We are both very grateful for the time you spent with us in explaining various options. We certainly feel we now both have a much better understanding of our situation & the decisions which we need to consider moving forward.

Thanks again for your advice, you have given me the kick I needed to take control and I’m very grateful for that.

We feel we can phone at any time during office hours if we need anything clarifying. Our financial adviser knows our personal circumstances and is in tune with our goals and lifestyle. His advice has been and continues to be excellent.

You’ve solved that dilemma for me… Thank you for being so clear and honest as always.

A very personalised service… All advice is tailored to my needs with great consideration to issues I may not have thought of myself. I feel confident about my future finances.

Thank you so much again for your time and brilliant advice.

Just a big thank you for all you have done for our family. We do appreciate it.
