Emergency First Aid at Work Courses

Suitable for: Freelancers and small and medium businesses with employees working in a low risk environment, such as service sector, shops and offices. There is a low likelihood of serious injury or illness, and emergency medical help is likely to arrive quickly.

In the standard six hour Emergency First Aid at Work course, the core training covers the essential skills needed to preserve life, prevent worsening and promote recovery after injury or illness in the low risk work environment until medical help arrives.

Our courses are active and hands-on! Expect to be an active participant, assessing other candidates as if you were a first aider and in turn acting as a casualty for other candidates. Learners should be physically able to participate, although reasonable adjustments are possible as appropriate.

Understand the role of the first-aider, including reference to:
The importance of preventing cross infection;
