Health and safety

The Red Cross knows exactly what to do to ensure you meet your obligations as an event organiser. Let us worry about the details.

Trained first aiders

All our first aiders are fully insured, DBS-checked and trained to national standards.

Quality assurance

Patient safety is the heart of our work – that’s why we have accountability at all levels and a thorough system of quality assurance. We’re also accredited with the Care Quality Commission, which means our ambulances must meet high standards set by an external regulator.

Ambulance crews

British Red Cross ambulance crews undergo rigorous training, accredited by the Institute of Health Care Development (IHCD).

Modern equipment

All our vehicles, communications systems and items of medical equipment are of the highest quality, and are regularly checked and audited.

Help with preparation

How much cover you need will depend on a number of factors – such as audience size, location and duration of activities. We’ll guide you through the event planning and resource assessment process, ensuring you meet all your obligations and provide a safe event.

A trusted partner

We regularly support the statutory authorities during emergencies and work closely with the National Health Service, to whom we act as an auxiliary in times of crisis.

Evidence-based treatment

Each year we conduct extensive research to ensure our patients are receiving excellent care.

In order to discharge fully its safety responsiblities, event organisers should ensure that appropriate medical, nursing, paramedic and first aid provision are available for all spectators."
