First aid training is important for any workplace. The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees if they are injured or become ill at work.
These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with five or fewer employees and to the self-employed. Employers are required to carry out an assessment of first aid needs.
Our First Aid Course has been developed to meet the requirements of all employers and ensure compliance with current regulations.
Highly practical and participative, First Aid training can be taken as an individual course or combined with another to create your own personalised training solution.
