First Aid in Remote Locations course makes life savers- before it finishes

We believe that first aid can be life saving, and that good first aid training is central to this, but there is more than one way to save a life. We now donate to Malaria No More making every delegate that attends our First Aid in Remote Locations course a life saver. So whilst they are learning the skills to save a life, we feel that they are actually saving the life of someone in sub-saharan Africa at the same time.

The work of charities such as Malaria no More is an essential part of the fight against this deadly disease. On our First Aid in Remote Locations courses the delegates are learning and practicing how to deal with catastrophic wounds, but also how to care for a sick colleague, so it’s in keeping that we are so concerned about Malaria.

On the latest course run in the first week of May, our donation allowed testing and treatment to be offered to 100 people, so with 11 delegates on the course that works out at just under 10 lives saved each! Not bad going, especially when you add on the number of times they saved our “casualties” on their #trainforreal first aid training. “Calamity Claire” and “Suffering Sam” [our live role players] had a total of 14 accidents across the course.

Increasing range of media safety training courses

Lazarus Training is continuing to develop its training catalogue with an increasing range of media safety training courses. To enable people to find the required information as easily as possible we are developing a range of topic specific websites. Whether its our range of media first aid training courses, our workplace safety training or our first aid training for hostile and challenging environments- you’ll find the key information online.

For example we have specific pages for our first aid in hostile environments training: http://mediafirstaidtraining.com/first-aid-in-hostile-locations

Or maybe you are looking for something a little less..”war like”- then any of our range of media safety training courses from our media first aid training project might be of interest. Information on our First Aid in the Office or Studio, First Aid on Locations and First Aid in Remote Locations courses might be of interest. For these we have set up a mini-website at http://mediafirstaidtraining.com/

As the above courses are relatively new, having been written purely for the media industry, we thought people might like to “see” what the training is like, how it’s delivered etc. To allow this we are constantly uploaded footage and images to our websites, but also to our YouTube Channel. Please note that we have worked with the media for many years- but we are a wide range of media safety training people- not cameramen! Apologies for any dodgy camera work or editing.

 

If you are interested in talking to someone about our courses call us on 0800 242 5210 or drop as an email to info@lazarustraining.co.uk.

Can You Protect Your Tummy From Traveler’s Diarrhea? : Goats and Soda : NPR

We have heard quite a few of these over the years on our courses. Great article.

There are about as many myths and misconceptions about traveler’s diarrhea as there are names for it, such as Delhi belly and Montezuma’s revenge. We’re here to explain what actually will help.

Hostile environments training courses

Hostile environments training course for media is aimed at providing skills and knowledge to help media workers prepare for and function within potentially hostile environments.

Our training team has recent experience on the ground in Afghanistan, Pakistan, West Africa, Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey/Syria border, East Africa and Thailand.

At Lazarus Training we pride ourselves on listening to the client and working with them to cover their specific needs, so all group course bookings are treated as bespoke events. Course content is varied to meet the needs of each client group but would typically cover:

Planning before the trip

Selection of kit and equipment

Emergency planning

Dealing with people, conflict and aggression

Weapon and explosive awareness [please note this isn’t training you to use weapons]

Explosive Remnants of War & Mines

Vehicle and driver safety

Hostile environments first aid training

Media first aid training

Media first aid training from Lazarus

Media first aid training is a specialist topic, in which Lazarus Training has years of experience. Having worked closely with large media organisations and regulating bodies, we can now offer a range of media first aid training courses covering all the requirements of the industry or sector.

 

The basic level is the First Aid in the Office or Studio course, this one day course is designed to meet the requirements of media staff in static locations, with medical help nearby but who may be mixing with the public.

 

Our First Aid on Locations course is just that, two days of practical media first aid training, covering the basics up to dealing with a road traffic collision. This course is highly practical, including the use of training scenarios with fake blood and injuries. This course includes the First Aid in the Office or Studio qualification.

 

Our First Aid in Remote Locations lasts three days and builds upon the First Aid on Locations course. Designed for groups working remote from medical assistance this courses includes travel health and prolonged care of someone injured or taken ill.

 

All our training is focused on the individuals attending the course and their likely working environment. We ensure that the training reflects the needs of the delegates and the first aid equipment they will have access to [or not as the case may be]. Our training is well known for its practical nature and is summed up in our #trainforreal ethos.

 

Assessment is carried out during the course, meaning there is no final written exam- as there isn’t in real life. Delegates need to be prepared for the physical nature of the training and need to wear older clothing which they won’t mind getting dirty!
