We are pleased to share the news that Ruth Lee Ltd is now a member of NASHiCS, the National Association for Health and Safety in Care Services.
With a reputation for creating the best products for training professionals, our manikins were first adopted by the fire service with other sectors quick to catch on to their versatility and durability. We work closely with industry experts to make sure that our products are the perfect match for the wide variety of training required and within the Care Sector and we are pleased to offer manikins for patient handling, emergency evacuation, CPR and Airway Management, even the care of bariatrics.
After receiving a growing number of enquiries from the Care sector, we were keen to link up with an expert organisation and are proud of our membership with NASHiCS.
NASHiCS was formed in October 2004 from the National Social Care Health and Safety Forum with the aim of promoting and improving safety and health within the Care Sector by providing a forum to encourage development and adaptation of the highest professional standards.
The Association and its Members deal with regulatory bodies such the HSE; on a wide range of health and safety topics including manual handling techniques, restraint, fire safety, first-aid and safety training. Ruth Lee Ltd.’s range of manikins are frequently used by the sector for this kind of training.
Ruth Lee Ltd’s Managing Director, Paul McDonnell said;
“We are thrilled to be a member of NASHiCS and we are keen to learn more about the complex health and safety requirements within the sector. Clearly, providing outstanding care is paramount to businesses and it is clear that those who provide excellent and ongoing training to their staff are rated highly by The Care Quality Commission (CQC).
At the beginning of the year, no one could have anticipated the devastating effect that COVID-19 would have on the country, particularly within the care sector. We have recently seen a huge increase in enquiries from within the care sector as providers look for ways to ensure training can continue whilst keeping their staff and residents safe. Using a training manikin is certainly a way to minimise person-to-person contact and we are proud to be able to offer this solution during such troubled times.”
