Course Overview

This one-day emergency first aid course will train you as an Emergency First Aider with theoretical and practical knowledge 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 cold 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, among other things. Consideration must be given to ensuring there are sufficient numbers of trained personnel to cover sickness, annual leave and any other absences. Where injuries in the workplace are likely to be relatively minor, such as cuts, then this course would be more suitable than the full 3 day First Aid at Work.
