Why employer organisations choose AEGIS training

Shake_handAEGIS Training results in better customer service and solid protection against injuries, complaints, litigation and prosecution. It also enables tighter control over staff conduct. AEGIS Trainers are able to train employees to perform role responsibilities within the most stringent ethical and legal protocols. For example, the Code of Conduct set for teachers on the ‘Use of Force to control Pupils’ (DfEE Circular 10/98) and the ‘Proportionate Force’ requirements of the Human Rights legislation. This means employers can set very clear expectations of their staff and legitimately expect the very highest standards of behaviour.

Aegis also works as a tier system in physical intervention, with parts 1 -2 -3. This allows participants/organisations to progress to a higher standard/qualification in physical intervention meaning that you can rest assure that you or your staff have had the best training in the field.

Our Conflict management courses can be run as a stand alone course or part of a combination course, if you feel yourself or your organisation could benefit from conflict management training and or physical intervention training Please contact either Damion Redwood (Essex Region) Or Alan Sidders (Sussex Region).

first-aidAll organisations must ensure by law that they have a sufficient number of employees who possess a first aid qualification in order to fulfill their first aid needs at all times. Employers must ensure that their provision is ‘adequate and appropriate in the circumstances’. It is the employer’s responsibility to decide what the requirements of the organisation are by assessing any specific work hazards and ensuring that sufficient equipment, facilities and personnel are available to deal with the consequences of these hazards.

As part of each assessment, the HSE recommends organisations should consider things such as the nature of the work and the subsequent hazards and risks, the size of the organisation, work patterns and accident histories.

First Aid is the immediate assistance given to someone injured or suddenly taken ill suddenly before the arrival of an ambulance, doctor or other appropriately qualified person. The person offering this help to a casualty must act calmly and with confidence, and above all must be willing to offer assistance whenever the need arises. First Aid is a skill based on knowledge, training and experience and a First Aider is someone who has completed a theoretical and practical course and passed a professionally supervised examination.

  • Give early, appropriate and adequate treatment in a sensible order of priority
  • Arrange for the removal of the casualty to hospital, to the care of a doctor, or home
