About First Aid Courses

Our first aid courses give individuals the knowledge and skills to respond effectively in an emergency and treat patients until medical help arrives.

Courses cover a range of essential skills, preparing users to manage various types of injury and deliver potentially life-saving interventions, including CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), AED use and choking relief. With these skills, employees become capable and confident first responders, ready to make a difference when it matters most.

Why Are Workplace First Aid Courses Important?

In Great Britain, 565,000 people suffered from a non-fatal injury at work and 36.8 million working days were lost due to work-related illness and injury, according to the Labour Force Survey (LFS)

First aid courses promote employee wellbeing and help minimise the harm of workplace accidents and injuries, contributing to a safer and more productive work environment.

Users develop the knowledge to respond effectively in emergencies and provide life-saving care until professional help arrives. These courses cover essential skills such as CPR, AED use and immediate injury treatment to prepare users to confidently respond to a range of workplace medical emergencies.

Are You Aware of Your Responsibilities?

Ensuring the safety and well-being of employees is a fundamental responsibility for any employer. To fulfil these responsibilities, it’s crucial to understand your obligations under the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981.

These regulations extend to all workplaces, regardless of the size or nature of your business. This includes organisations with fewer than five employees and the self-employed. 

According to these regulations, employers must:

  • Ensure adequate and appropriate first aid equipment and facilities
  • Provide first aid training
  • Make employees aware of first aid arrangements

Fulfilling these responsibilities as an employer will help you contribute to a safer and more secure work environment for everyone.
