First Aid At Work

It is essential that all workplaces have a person responsible to provide immediate attention if an accident occurs or someone is taken ill at work. The Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 legislation requires employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees. These regulations apply to all workplaces including those with five or less employees and to the self employed.

The minimum first aid provision on any work site is a fully stocked first aid box and an appointed person to take charge of first aid arrangements, however your workplace may need greater provisions. Once an assessment of the workplace has been done (this can be done by the employer or by us), the first aid requirements can be met by the correct training of the required number of staff.

Courses can be delivered In-House for small or larger groups of staff


Thank you for such an excellent training course last week. It was both encouraging and eye opening, and you taught it and us with such passion and enthusiasm that we all feel so much better equipped should something unfortunate happen! In particular we appreciated the way you organised the three days. We worked at a great pace, whilst not being exhausted, and always felt there was room from questions and a chance to double check the things we were unsure on. The location was great, the facilities wonderful, and it was great to meet new people.
