The Recovery Position

Why The Recovery Position Saves Lives

The Recovery Position is a vital first aid technique used to safeguard an unconscious but breathing individual. By carefully placing them on their side, this position helps maintain an open airway, allowing for clear breathing and preventing the inhalation of fluids like saliva, blood, or vomit which could lead to choking or aspiration.

How to apply a First Aid Dressing

Knowing how to apply a first aid dressing is a vital skill, as not all wounds heal the same way. From minor scrapes to severe burns, each injury requires a specific approach. First Aid kits should be stocked with gauze bandages and specialised dressings, avoiding materials like cotton wool that can complicate the wound.

Fighting fatigue: Staying alert and avoiding safety hazards at work

With over 40% of workplace incidents linked to fatigue, it’s essential to stay alert to avoid accidents. Fatigue impairs judgement, slows reactions, and dulls concentration. Both employers and employees must recognise and manage fatigue risks, implementing strategies like sufficient sleep, hydration, nutritious food, regular breaks, and light exercise.
