More than 30 people were given free life support training at a session organised by occupational health and safety business Safewell Ltd in Royal Wootton Bassett.

The company ran two training courses in adult cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and how to use a defibrillator at its Templars Way Industrial estate site. 

After working with other local businesses to fund a community outdoor defibrillator cabinet on the industrial estate last year, Safewell aimed to increase awareness of how to act if someone is in cardiac arrest. 

Using CPR manikins and a defibrillator, a qualified instructor taught participants how to provide critical life-saving assistance until support arrives. 

Managing director Nick Evans said: “We originally planned to run one training session in the morning, but interest was so great that we added another in the afternoon. 

"It’s fantastic that so many people are keen to learn these life-saving first aid skills. We hope to run this again in the near future.”

Safewell Ltd offers a range of occupational health and safety services, including consultancy, risk assessments, health surveillance medicals, occupational health assessments, and a range of first aid training courses.
