Emergency First Aid at Work
It is designed to reduce the risk of serious and lasting workplace injuries – and we receive a lot of positive feedback from employers and employees who have benefited from it.
The one-day course is held at our Huddersfield training centre or at your workplace. It meets the requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and covers the necessary theory and practical skills needed if you are asked to care for someone who has a sudden illness or an injury in the workplace.
Its content will help you to understand the roles and responsibilities of the emergency first aider and provide interactive experience in assessing and dealing with a first aid incident.
At the end of the Emergency First Aid at Work course, successful candidates receive an approved certificate valid for three years – and you can be assured that Qualsafe approval ensures nationally recognised course quality.
