Staff at all BrewDog bars in the UK are to be given major incident training to help them deal with the threat of terror.

All 290 workers in the bar teams will take the training run by specialists ABRRAS.

It covers how to deliver CPR and how to follow the 'chain of survival', as well as what to do during a terrorist incident to keep safe.

 

 

David McDowall, managing director of BrewDog bars, said: "As a result of the training, our bar staff will be able to assess casualties and administer CPR, and provide emergency first aid. We will also train our crew in safety procedures during a terrorist incident to keep people safe.

"We're totally committed to our people and want our bars to be places they want to work in. We were the first food and drink retail company in the UK to introduce the living wage, and now we're taking the lead in ensuring our staff and customers are in a safe environment.

"The new training will ensure our people feel prepared for anything that's thrown at them."

BrewDog has 29 bars in the UK, stretching from Aberdeen in Scotland down to Brighton on the south coast.
