3 Day First Aid at Work Course

What are the topics covered on the course?

Our first aid at work course covers the course content specified in the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

It gives learners the skills and confidence to respond to a range of accidents and first aid emergencies they could encounter in the workplace.

This course now includes a practical, hands-on automated external defibrillator (AED) awareness session using trainer AEDs, a move which has been welcomed by the Health and Safety Executive, citing that awareness training instils greater confidence in the use of AEDs.
