Venue: Zoom meeting

Speaker: Phil Newton, Managing Director, Skills Shop, Barrow-in-Furness.

After welcoming attendees to the joint meeting of South Cumbria & North Lancashire IOSH Branch and South Cumbria Occupational Health & Safety Group Gary introduced Phil Newton, Managing Director, Skills Shop who is also a qualified First Aid instructor.

Phil discussed ways of providing adequate First Aid provision while complying with Covid-19 requirements such as recommendations about additional items for First Aid kits, Corvid-19 training for First Aiders and ensuring that First Aiders were not amongst population groups who are more vulnerable to Covid-19. Phil also recommended that members should set emergency contacts on their i-phones because these could be accessed by emergency services in the event of an accident.
