First Aid at Work Course

Our First Aid at Work Course covers the practical skills needed by a first aider in the modern workplace. The course will give you the confidence and knowledge to deal with first aid emergencies.

Even the most benign work environment can be a hazardous place. Accidents and illnesses can transform an average workday into a crisis. The Health and Safety Regulations of 1981 (HSR) recommend that workplaces have a first aid-trained worker for every 50 employees, and The First Aid at Work Course will help you to achieve that. Our comprehensive three-day course will equip your staff with the knowledge they need to save lives.

Who should attend our First Aid at Work Course?

Every workplace needs nominated first aid staff who can cope with emergencies. The HSR recommends that you aim for one nominated first aider for every 50 staff members. We understand that it can be difficult to let go of your employees for three days in a row, so we offer the First Aid at Work course in a split structure where necessary. It equips employees for a three-year period, after which they will need to requalify – See our First Aid at Work Refresher Course for more information.

First Aid at Work Course

What you will learn

This three-day course includes emergent care for health-related incidents like seizures, low blood sugar, asthma, and allergic reactions. It also covers accident care and first aid kit usage for burns, choking, eye injuries, and shock. Record keeping is an often ignored first aid requirement, so our course also covers this important skill. Wherever there are emergencies, there is the risk of shock, so we’ll train your staff to cope with this life-threatening condition.

The course is fully compliant with the HSO 1981, so you can rest easy in the knowledge that you’re doing the best that you can for your valued workers.
