COVID-19 Update

KnifeSavers Statement:

Covid-19 has had a profound effect on all of us this year however sadly knife violence remains prevalent.

But our mission to empower and educate the general public on how to manage life threatening bleeding from knife wounds remains the same.


When providing any bleeding control aid to people in which you are likely to be in close physical contact the risk of airborne diseases such as Covid-19 transmitted is very low but cannot be completely excluded. The bottom line of providing Knife Savers skills has always been staying ALERT and keeping yourself SAFE and we only recommend providing any hands-on care if the situation is safe for you to do so.


  • If available you should wear a  fluid resistant surgical mask. If not available, wear face coverings when providing first aid and put a face covering (even a piece of clothing) over the injured patient’s nose and mouth.
  • If available wear disposable gloves and eye protection.
  • Avoid touching your mouth, eyes and nose. Put your phone on speakerphone to 999 so it does not have to be held to your ear.
  • After delivering first aid or bleeding control to  any member of the public, remove and discard your mask and eye protection and clean your hands thoroughly with soap and water or alcohol hand sanitiser at the earliest opportunity.
If you become unwell within 2 weeks of providing care to a patient please follow the up to date advice at


Please remember that the risk of catching coronavirus from delivering bleeding control first aid is very small, and even smaller if the above advice is taken.
