Does my workplace need Emergency First Aid Training?

Under the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations of 1981, every employer has legal obligations. This is required to ensure that adequate and appropriate first aid provisions are available in the workplace. This mandate extends to all work environments. This includes both small enterprises and self-employed individuals.

The definition of “adequate and appropriate” first aid can vary depending on specific workplace conditions. Several factors need to be considered. Employers are advised to conduct a thorough first-aid needs assessment. Then they should determine the necessary provisions to keep their workplace safe and compliant. Our courses train and certify you to meet these requirements. They enable you to provide swift and effective first-aid response at your workplace.

What does an Emergency First Aid at Work course teach you

Our emergency first aid courses aim to teach you everything that is required by Health & Safety law. The candidate will be proficient at managing and providing first aid assistance if an emergency at work were to arise.

Who is this course for?

This course aims to teach low-risk businesses and organisations essential emergency first aid. If you work in a high-risk environment, such as in a garage or building site then the 3-day HSE First Aid at Work course will be more appropriate as it covers more extreme casualties.

The outdoor courses include heavy bleeds and treating hypothermia.
