Tourniquet training – necessary for first-aiders?

Posted on: Tuesday, 2 August 2016

IBA UK is now offering advanced first aid courses in the use of tourniquets and haemostatic dressings for those in the security industry and workers in high-risk industries. In this post, we’ll look at the controversy over tourniquet use, and why we think it remains an indispensible procedure. To tourniquet or not to tourniquet? We’ve all seen tourniquets at the movies. The hero tears off his shirt and ties a makeshift tourniquet round the leg of his badly-injured buddy. The reality is a bit more complex than that. The use of emergency tourniquets is one of the more controversial areas in first aid. The problem is that using a tourniquet is a powerful intervention that can have all sorts of…

IBA UK all set to deliver WRAP3 training

Posted on: Monday, 8 February 2016

  This week, IBA UK personnel received their Home Office registration numbers for delivering WRAP3 (Working to Raise Awareness of Prevent) training. Duncan White and Sandra Williams are now able to deliver this vital training to schools, the NHS and other affected organisations. WRAP3 training is a key part of the Government’s Prevent strategy. The Prevent duty places an obligation upon schools and other childcare providers to identify children who may be vulnerable to radicalisation, and know what to do when they are identified. It also aims to create resilience in young people to radicalisation, by promoting fundamental British values and enabling them to challenge extremist views. Since September 2015, the Prevent duty has been incorporated into  Ofsted’s revised common…

Legal update – the law in relation to the use of force

Posted on: Friday, 22 January 2016

In managing behaviour, schools need to prevent and protect. Inevitably, this will sometimes mean making use of reasonable force. But what exactly is ‘reasonable force’? Many teachers discover they can’t answer that question at the worst possible moment. That is, when they are faced with a situation that clearly requires them to use force. With assaults on public sector workers increasing across the board, and around one in twelve teachers suffering a physical assault in the last year, that moment may come sooner than they imagine. Getting the ‘reasonable force’ answer wrong can be disastrous. Using excessive force or incorrect techniques can have serious consequences for students. But the effect on staff can be equally devastating. Allegations of improper use…
