There is currently a skills shortage in the wider economy, especially in the construction sector and our own area of expertise is no different.

So, how can we help? We’ve created a simple “how to” for those who wish to become full or part time safety trainers. This guide is not only for those who are thinking of creating your own business empire! Others, for example, after the hiatus recent years, may wish to refresh or add to their existing skills.

As our business has grown, we have fostered strong and professional business partnerships and built strong relationships in the safety training arena. We are acknowledged by our customers and peers as being leaders in our field.

NSTN & Dunboyne Cardiac At the Heart of the Community

Heart of the Community

Dunboyne, Ireland – 14 February 2022

Happy Valentine’s Day!

At Nationwide Safety Training, we take pride in being at the heart of the community, which is why we’re delighted to partner with a group that is literally at the heart of our community, by providing a training space at our HQ for it to train new recruits and to refresh the skills of existing members. So, while you’re busy dealing with affairs of the heart, please take time to read about one of our partner organisations, Dunboyne Cardiac.

Dunboyne Cardiac is a local volunteer group that assists the National Ambulance Service with cardiac arrest calls in the Dunboyne area.

When a member of the public calls 999 or 112, the National Ambulance Service control room will dispatch an emergency ambulance to the incident, if that emergency is within 5 kilometres of Dunboyne, the local First Responders also get notified.

In most cases the Community First Responders will be on the scene within minutes. This early attendance could literally mean the difference between life and death for the patient, especially when the casualty has suffered a Cardiac Arrest and requires immediate potential lifesaving interventions.

  • Community First Responders attend calls in their own vehicles.
  • Community First Responders are trained in Adult, Paediatric and Infant CPR & choking
  • Chest Pain Management and Aspirin administration,
  • The use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)
  • Stroke recognition (using F.A.S.T.)

Community First Responders do not replace the statutory bodies. They are a VOLUNTARY addition and may not always be on call, this will depend on numbers trained and available in your community.

Dunboyne Cardiac is always looking for new members, so if you feel that you can help, please make contact by email at dunboynecfr@gmail.com or by visiting its Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100008329545975

Working from Home Heaven, or Hell?

HeavenHellLandscape

Dunboyne, Ireland – 14 October 2021 

As we await further announcements in relation to the further lifting of restrictions and with the gradual return to the office for many, we’ve been discussing the pros and cons of the home office.

During the past 18 months, we have spoken to hundreds of people about the benefits and drawbacks of working remotely. It’s fair to say that there are a number of mixed emotions at play in the minds of working people. For some, there’s a real feeling of excitement and anticipation, while others are feeling anxious and overwhelmed at the prospect of their circumstances changing.

Well, what is it? Heaven or Hell? From what people are saying to us, the simple answer is that it can be both, in equal measure! It depends on the person and his or her unique set of circumstances. It’s about finding the right solution for you and getting a balance that works.

If you’d like to see how we can help you with your Health & Safety Training and Consultancy needs, whether you’re continuing to work from home, or returning to the office, please get in touch by telephone on (01) 825 1302, or by email to info@nstn.ie.
