Safety First at Recycling Lives

In a move designed to make Recycling Lives a safer workplace than ever, seven members of staff have completed a one-day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course.

Recycling Lives training team member, Clinton Williams, delivered the course last week to a group of 12 people comprising seven members of staff from Recycling Lives staff and five individuals who had come from other companies to pick up the useful skills.

The EFAW course gives participants an intensive overview of the basic first aid skills needed to be able to assess and manage an emergency situation at work until the arrival of trained medical staff.

As a Health and Safety conscious company, situated in a traditionally high-risk sector, Recycling Lives strives to ensure that there are numerous qualified first aiders in every department. This month’s training was undertaken by Jamie Makinson and Peter Varga from the waste management department, Tamas Pinter and Martin Hundziak from the CRT department, Betty from the Recycling Lives Retail Park canteen and two members of staff from the Recycling Lives charity. All members of staff passed the course with flying colours, and are now qualified first aiders at work.

Well done to everyone that took the course!
