The ability to deliver emergency first aid can mean the difference between life and death. Skills such as delivering CPR, dealing with bleeds, and working to codes of practice are invaluable in and out of the workplace. We can deliver 1 and 3-day first aid training.

Course Delegates

If you are self-employed you are required to ensure you have such equipment, as may be adequate and appropriate in the circumstances, to provide first aid to yourself while at work.

You should make an assessment of the hazards and risks in your workplace and establish an appropriate level of first-aid provision. If you carry out activities involving low hazards (eg clerical work) in your own home, you would not be expected to provide first-aid equipment beyond your normal domestic needs.
