First aid courses for the workplace

Become a first aider and you'll make a real difference to the well-being of your colleagues and visitors to your work place.

First aid provision in the workplace does save lives & can prevent minor problems or injuries from quickly developing into major ones. It can help employers reduce costs from injury. It is also a legal requirement for every single employer to make sure their employees receive the right first aid care in the workplace. From the 1st October 2009 the requirements for first aid in the workplace have changed.

First aiders

Depending on the hazards and number of employees in the workplace your first aiders will need to be trained in either Emergency first aid at work or First aid at work.

  • Emergency first aid - one day course for smaller low risk workplaces
  • First aid at work - three day course for initial qualification
  • First aid at work refresher - two day course to re-qualify existing first aiders
