The Caravan Club is winner in UK Heart Safe Awards 2014
The Club was one of six organisations in the Heart Safe Sports, Leisure & Tourism Business category.
The Caravan Club is Europe’s largest touring organisation and represents over one million caravanners, motorhomers and trailer-tenters. The Club took the decision to introduce Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and training into the business in June 2012, with a total of 168 AEDs now held across its head office site and UK campsite network.
Neil Windeatt, Head of Sites Operations for The Caravan Club, says, “The Caravan Club is a members organisation that see’s hundreds of thousands of visitors to its UK sites network each year, it also has around 1000 staff in total at its head office and on its sites network. As both a responsible organisation and employer, the decision to introduce AEDs was both an obvious and simple one and The Club is delighted to have been recognised.”
Of the judging criteria, the Hand on Heart charity, that run the annual awards say, “The judges look for organisations or individuals that go above and beyond health, safety and medical requirements to deliver lifesaving equipment in their work place or leisure environment and organisations and that invest in training their employees to conduct lifesaving procedures should the situation arise.”
