Within our ongoing annual safety campaigns Lowery HSQE are also including onsite Emergency First Aid refresher training using the industry recognised Annie doll and defibrillator unit. Lowery’s aim is to continually assess & refresh our staff’s knowledge on how to do basic lifesaving skills.

This safety campaign is all backed up with Lowery’s ongoing commitment to ensure every mobile or static welfare unit has a high spec defibrillator located within.
