Lifesaving Defibrillators now available across all Fortis Sites

July 11, 2023

We are pleased to announce that Fortis and the Raymond Brown Group has installed defibrillators across all sites, including IBA processing facilities, quarries and the head office in Chandler’s Ford.

An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a lifesaving device that can help someone experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest by delivering an electric shock.

The new ZOLL AED Plus Fully Automatic Defibrillators were purchased from St John Ambulance and provide access to potentially lifesaving equipment for staff, visitors to our sites and the local community.

Steven Laight, Group HSQE Manager commented: “The well-being and safety of our employees, visitors, and the communities in which we work has always been our priority.  The implementation of the defibrillators was an outcome of our staff suggestion program, and we are delighted that each of our sites now has its own fully automatic defibrillator.  These are a great additional measure in protecting the health of our teams and can be shared with the local community as they are registered on the national defibrillator network.”
