Emergency first aid at work

The Emergency first aid at work qualification provides a basic insight into first aid procedures. Delegates will learn basic life support skills and improve their chances of coping with a casualty in an emergency.
Employers should decide on the level of first aid training required by carrying out a “first aid needs assessment.” Should you need assistance in completing an assessment please contact Ouch.

Who needs this qualification?

The Emergency First Aid at Work course is suitable for small work environments; such as offices, shops & organisations with fewer than 100 employees. Anyone identified by their employer as being suitable to take on the role of an emergency first aider in their workplace.

Why is this course important?

Just imagine how awful it would be if one of your staff or visitors was injured or became ill at work. This course will equip delegates with first aid skills & knowledge and to assist with life threatening conditions until help arrives.
The H&S (First-Aid) regulations 1981 place a general duty on employers to provide first-aid treatment to employees within the workplace environment. If, having assessed first-aid needs, an employer decides to appoint first aiders, the first aider must have a valid certificate of competence.
