Workplace First Aid Training


Workplace first aid training must comply with the Health & Safety First Aid Regulations 1981. The first stage for an employer is to conduct a risk assessment of your workplace, specific guidance is available on the HSE website:

This will then allow you to decide which of the workplace courses would suit your business best, in simple terms the Emergency First Aider at Work is aimed at low risk organisations, First Aid at Work for higher risk. Legislation changes were made in October 2013 as the HSE will no longer approve or monitor first aid training organisations. The onus is being placed on businesses like yours to ensure you use due diligence in checking that the training organisation meets the requirements laid down in the legislation. To help you and give you confidence in our courses we are registered with the First Aid Industry Body who externally verify and accredit our training. You can check our registration by going to the website of the First Aid Industry Body at or tel: 0161 494 9045.

All of our trainers are fully qualified, with years of hands on experience in healthcare, the emergency services and as front line first aiders.
