Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) have been purchased and installed at each of our offices; Carryduff, Farnborough, Mallusk and Newry.
As a responsible employer, we have voluntarily invested in this equipment, demonstrating our commitment to keeping our colleagues and the wider community safe. They have been registered with the ambulance service with public access during business hours should the need ever arise and we have also delivered employee training; although the devices operate with minimal user intervention.
IOSH, the British Heart Foundation and Resuscitation Council UK recommend the deployment of AEDs in the workplaces to save lives, although we hope they will never be needed. As an employer we are committed to the health and wellbeing of our employees and this is reflected through our employee benefits package.
