It is a requirement of the Health & Safety law that employers provide a safe and healthy environment to work in.
If your assessment of First Aid needs highlights the need to maintain the qualifi cation of your First Aiders, then this course will provide you with that. This comprehensive two-day course covers a wide range of First Aid emergencies, enabling all participants to deal with an emergency situation with confidence in a prompt, safe and effective way. In addition to this, should there have been any change to protocols during their initial qualification, then this will be updated.
This course will give the participants a qualification to the highest level of First Aid, meeting the statutory requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
