Heartfelt help for Guardian Electrical Compliance staff

09 May 2024

Guardian Electrical Compliance Ltd (Guardian), part of PTSG Electrical Services Ltd, has partnered with Resuscitation Council UK (RCUK) in an attempt to ensure that it is providing a duty of care to look after the safety of all users of its premises.

Guardian is headquartered in Sheffield. The company has other premises in Milton Keynes and Glasgow. Through the partnership with RCUK, defibrillators will be installed at these premises. They will form part of a publicly accessible network of defibrillators across the UK.

The Resuscitation Council UK (RCUK) develops guidelines, influences policy, delivers courses and supports cutting-edge research. The aim is to improve survival rates of cardiac arrests inside and outside of hospitals.

Over half of Guardian’s 160 office-based staff in Sheffield have begun e-learning training provided by RCUK. Entitled e-Lifesaver, it is a BAFTA-nominated innovative digital training tool that puts the user at the heart of the action. It’s an interactive video-in-a-game with four immersive scenarios, which helps users learn what to do if someone is in a state of cardiac arrest or choking. At the end of the course, users can download a certificate of completion.

Guardian has also joined The Circuit. This is the National Defibrillator Network. Emergency services often don’t use many defibrillators because they lack knowledge of their location or how to access them.

This is where The Circuit comes in. It?provides the?NHS ambulance services with vital information about defibrillators?across the UK. This information can be access quickly in those crucial moments after a cardiac arrest to help save lives. For Guardian, this means its defibrillators are part of this national network. It has the ability to save lives of anyone – not just users of their premises.

Guardian is proud to be working with the RCUK which breaks down health inequalities and makes sure its resuscitation community is diverse and representative to ensure all people have the best chance of survival in the event of cardiac arrest.
