Here is a special reminder to those of you who have numbers under your wing. You are running a business, it does matter what kind, and under your wing are a team of staff members. If you have one of those businesses which need to see customer foot traffic come and go through your doors on a regular basis than this message reminder becomes even more important. Not only are you responsible for the safety and security of your staff and business, you are responsible for the safety of you valued customers.
Congratulations to you if you are handling large volumes of traffic, because that could mean your business is doing quite well. But the possibility of accidents increases at this rate. If your business operates several storeys up from ground level, then pole top rescue training might be recommended. Upstairs or at ground level, some form of medical training will be required. If someone is injured during an accident or falls ill, you or one of your staff members will have to revive or keep the customer steady until the emergency rescue team arrives.
In order to carry out a successful rescue operation, you do not always need all the sophisticated equipment that some of these rescue teams bring to the operation. In fact, you will find that they do not even need those at times. It is true that the so-called Jaws of Life will still be required at the scene of an automobile accident, but in many other cases, just ropes and blankets may be needed. Learning how to utilize these ropes in order to carry out a rescue operation is where it all counts.
Count yourself lucky if you have given yourself the necessary training.
