We offer a wide range of First Aid Courses across the UK. This includes courses that comply with The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
We understand that first and foremost we need to listen.
Only through understanding your needs, requirements and challenges can we implement an effective training solution.
First aid is required in any workplace
Whether it’s an industrial setting or an office environment, accidents can occur at any time, and there needs to be someone on hand who is trained to give immediate attention.
This is not actually an option, rather it’s a legal requirement.
Employers need to ensure that an employee who is injured or taken ill at work receives immediate attention.
If not, the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) will prosecute in cases where there is a significant risk, a disregard for established standards, or persistent poor compliance with the law.
Health and safety at work must be taken seriously
It’s not enough to do an online course or merely read up on life-saving techniques.
Recognised training must be given to the designated first aider, resulting in a qualification.
There are also other situations outside the workplace where first aid training may be beneficial.
For example, the majority of parents admit that they wouldn’t know basic first aid procedures to save their child’s life.
Think about the wide range of accidents children have on a regular basis in the comfort of their own home – cuts, choking, falls, asthma attacks.
A basic level of first aid training can help in all walks of life.
Being a first aider isn’t just about ticking boxes and acquiring a certificate, but about having the knowledge, skills and confidence to administer a procedure that might save someone’s life.
You’re giving someone the best possible chance of survival, and that’s an amazing thing.
