As a union that works to protect and improve the interests of paramedics working in Belgium, Ambulanciersunie are an important cause that Audax are pleased to lend their support to for the third consecutive year as The Headline Prime Sponsor.
Ambulanciersunie campaign for a better future for all their members including all 112 paramedics and ambulances and the non-emergency patient transport workers.
Ambulanciersunie work hard to deliver their four key goals, which include protecting the rights and interests of paramedics, encouraging the provision of more financial resources for the ambulance service, and to provide high-quality training and better working conditions.
In 2021, a survey found that 70% of paramedics feared for their safety while at work. With stats like this in mind, The Audax team believes that aggression towards ambulance members should be dealt with severely by the courts, and that Audax body worn camera video evidence aids in the provision of a “gold standard of evidence” to prove cases when this does unfortunately occur.
Primarily Body worn Video is used to increase the safety of frontline workers by deescalating confrontations and for the gathering of impartial, accurate evidence that can be used to educate, inform or prosecute. BWV also improves transparency in terms of relationships with the public, while also reducing offender complaints and speeding up the administration of justice.
Audax understands the severity of the issues that these workers face, and the pressure
put under daily. That’s why Audax has been working closely with
Ambulanciersunie since 2019, providing them with support and advice around the
benefits and use of body cameras for private
and organisational use in the French, Dutch and German
speaking regions across Belgium.
As we move into 2023, Audax will continue to be the Unions Headline
Prime Sponsor and supporting their great work.
Manging Director of Audax, Adam Liardet stated, “Audax are delighted to be renewing our sponsorship with Ambulanciersunie, helping them to deliver and improve the working conditions of their members. Protecting those on the front line is something we’re incredibly passionate about and providing our support and subject matter knowledge to protect those in the Belgium ambulance service is so important to us. We’re honoured to be protecting those who work tirelessly to protect us.”
