First Aid at Work 3 Day Courses 31 courses


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.

In practice, this often means nominating a first aider, and ensuring they are equipped with the appropriate skills and knowledge. If you're the nominated first aider in your organisation, this course will give you an excellent grounding in the skills and knowledge you need to manage a first aid incident effectively.
