The Health and Safety regulations (1981) require all employers provide a safe and healthy working environment and to ensure employees receive immediate attention if they are ill or injured. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) strongly recommends assessing the first aid needs based on the hazards and risks involved with your workplace. This inclusive First Aid at Work course will provide you with suitable, competent and highly trained personnel.
This three-day course provides students the comprehensive knowledge and skills required to become a competent and confident first aider in the workplace. Course content is taught in accordance with current guidelines published by the Resuscitation Council (UK), current FAW manuals and other published guidelines. As a result, participants will be enabled to deal with emergency situations with a confident, prompt, safe and effective manner.
This course is delivered by qualified medical personnel (minimum of FAW) who have credible experience, knowledge, skills and who are currently practicing in their specific area. Trainers are qualified to a minimum of Level 3: Award in Education and Training (AET) previously known as PTLLS.
