February 2015

Abbeymead Safety Training is pleased to announce it is a Qualsafe Awards Approved Centre. We are now registered to deliver approved First Aid courses accredited by Qualsafe Awards.

January 2013

Training provider legislation has altered. Any organisation needing first aid training should ascertain that the provider has the necessary quality. Until April 1st 2013 this is provided by the HSE but after that there are a variety of methods. Abbeymead Safety Training has internal monitoring, external verification and ongoing feedback systems in place to ensure that the customers get the best possible training at sensible prices. We welcome enquiries from potential customers needing this information.

Abbeymead were the first training organisation in the Westcountry to deliver First Aid Training to the European Resuscitation Council Guidelines which were published today. The main changes are that compressions during CPR should be deeper (5 to 6 cm) and faster (between 100 and 120 compressions per minute). This confirms Abbeymead's desire to be a leader in first aid training. The Vinnie Jones method in 2012 is designed for untrained people. If you have been trained then you could do even better!


October 2010

We attended the launch of Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (HABC) at the Assembly Rooms in Bath. This is destined to be the major organisation dealing with examinations and quality control for compliance training in Great Britain. The meeting was introduced by Richard Sprengler, the author of many highly respected books on food safety. Abbeymead signed up as a training provider and became the first organisation in Devon and Cornwall to successfully deliver food safety courses through HABC.
