On the 1st of October 2009, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) implemented new rules for employers on first aid at work. Employers must by law carry out a first aid training needs assessment. There are now two types of first aiders: First Aid at Work Training (3 day course) and an Emergency First Aid at Work (1 day course). In addition, the HSE now recommends that all First Aiders attend annual refresher training of 3 hours.

We offer the following first aid training courses:


Emergency First Aid at Work

This training courses are for Appointed Persons and are Health & Safety Executive recommended. This is the minimum level of First Aid training for the workplace, appropriate for low-risk environments or for those acting in the absence of a fully qualified First Aider.


First Aid at Work

This HSE approved 3 day first aid at work course is for individuals intending to act as a First Aider at Work. The course will provide attendees with the skills and knowledge necessary to give effective life support, diagnose and treat injuries and illness and maintain care and comfort of the casualty.


Annual First Aid Refresher

The HSE strongly recommends that both Emergency First Aiders at Work and First Aiders at Work undergo this 3 hour first aid refresher training course annually to ensure they are up to date with current procedures and to keep their knowledge and skills fresh.


First Aid Refresher

Available to qualified First Aiders at Work who would like to renew their First Aid at Work qualification.
