Emergency First Aid at Work

The Emergency First Aid at Work is a 1-Day training course. It will help meet your regulatory requirements when your first aid needs assessment and risk assessments detail that first aid training covering emergency protocols only is sufficient for your workplace. It meets the standards required to help comply with Health and Safety (First aid) regulations and conforms with HSE guidance.

Course description

Who should attend?

This course is designed for people who want to receive training in emergency first aid. Especially suited for nominated first aiders in smaller, lower risk working environments like small offices and workspaces. This course covers first aid protocols for adults only. Childcare practitioners and workers would require one of our Paediatric First Aid courses.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). While we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
