First Aid at Work

It’s true that having first aid training undoubtedly helps save lives. That’s not all though; giving appropriate first aid immediately can help to reduce a person’s recovery time and make the difference between the patient having a temporary or long term disability.

On our courses  you will learn how to remain calm in emergency situations and some simple acronyms to help you remember the steps you need to take.  Our first aid training will make you confident and comfortable and therefore more effective and in control when you need to be.

Did you know that an estimated 555,000 workers in Britain sustained an injury at work in 2017/18?

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate first aid training.

However, having the correct first aid provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff.
