Promote first aid in your workplace
As the one to book your business' first aid training, you could
be the difference between life and death for your colleagues.
Although booking a first aid course with St John Ambulance is
easy, getting your colleagues to volunteer to go on the course and
making sure the budget is signed off first is often more
challenging. The St John Ambulance First aid promotion
toolkit is a series of items for you to download in order
to promote the benefits of being first aid trained at work.
Here is what is included in the
first aid promotion toolkit download, and the best ways to use each
'Be the one' poster
The A4 and A3 sized posters should be used to promote first aid
training around the office. Print off as many as you wish, and put
them up in your kitchens, staff rooms and toilets. Before long your
colleagues will be knocking on your door to get signed up.
'Be the one' flyer
The flyer gives more detail on being first aid trained at work
and the benefits of signing up to a course. Make sure to print
these off and drop them on desks for people to have a read over in
their spare time.
The business benefits
There is no doubt that learning the skills to save a life is
essential. Finding budget and time to spare away from the office
can often be a sticking point when signing off training. This one
pager gives detailed benefits of using St John Ambulance as opposed
to other first aid providers. Email it on or print it off to give
to whoever holds the purse strings.
Email to colleagues
An email can often be the best way to sell in first aid training
to relevant colleagues. We have put together a suggested email to
send on to your boss and also to your other colleagues in the
businesses – explaining what first aid training if available for
your workplace and how they can sign up. Just copy and paste the
text, fill in the relevant gaps and press send. It may be worth
attaching some of the other items for added impact.
