Here at Work Wise we specialise in first aid, manual handling & fire safety courses for both business customers and also for the public. Based in Drogheda, Co. Louth we provide training courses within counties Louth, Meath, Monaghan, Cavan and Dublin as well as futher afield. We have a wide range of courses available including occupational first aid, paediatric first aid and manual handling, and can also design training courses specifically to meet customer needs. All courses are developed using a systematic training approach with the specific needs of the organisation or group in mind.
We believe that a first aid course is a must for everyone. There really is no other training that is as important and potentially as beneficial as a first aid course. Emergencies can happen anywhere and knowing what to do in those first few moments can be critical for patient survival.
Most incident's occur in patients' homes (60%)
The (cardiac) arrest was witnessed in more than two thirds of cases
Less than half of patients received assistance prior to the arrival of the ambulance service
When the chances of witnessing a loved one suffering a cardiac arrest are so high, isn't it worth being able to know what to do?
Our manual handling courses are designed to be practical, informative and accessible to all. Although traditionally manual handling training has focused only on the work environment, there are many occasions outside of the workplace where we are required to lift, push, pull or carry objects. We operate under the motto that 'its not about the box!', and its really not. Its about making changes to our behaviour that will allow us to work safely with minimal risk to our bodies, both inside and outside the workplace.
