Learning basic first aid skills is not only useful at work, but in all kinds of situations in life.
The First Aid at Work course is designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge to properly administer first aid in your workplace. It prepares you to deal with various medical emergencies, enabling you to provide an immediate response until medical help arrives.
Having the ability to provide first aid can often minimise the severity of someone’s injuries and prevent more complications. It’s your job to stabilise an individual’s condition until the ambulance gets there.
This comprehensive training covers everything from dealing with minor injuries to more serious conditions such as cardiac arrest and choking.
A First Aid at Work qualification is important for companies in all industries.
Here in the UK, employers have a legal responsibility under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 to ensure that there are proper first aid provisions in the workplace. This includes having trained first aiders who are available to provide assistance in the event of accidents or injuries.
Having first aid training also shows you care about the wellbeing of your staff.
Having trained first aiders in the workplace creates a safer and more reassuring environment for your employees. It provides much more peace of mind knowing that there are individuals who can provide help if needed.
