Designed for

The course will provide theoretical and practical training in basic life saving first aid.

Every employer, even those with less than five employees, must carry out an assessment of the risk in their workplace and must decide what level of First Aid provision they must provide. Issues to consider could include the type of work activities taking place, what possible injuries might occur, the size of the workplace, the layout of the workplace, the proximity to emergency services etc.. Consideration must also be given to making sure that there is sufficient number of trained personnel to cover sickness, annual leave etc.. Where injuries in the workplace are likely to be relatively minor, such as cuts, then this course may be more suitable than the full 3 day First Aid at Work.

At the end of the course, delegates will be trained to act as Emergency First Aider in their workplace.
