Accidents and medical emergencies can happen at any time, and having individuals trained in first aid skills can provide vital immediate assistance while waiting for professional medical help to arrive.

This isn’t set in stone. The number of first aiders needed in your place of work depends on the level of risk involved. We recommend conducting a risk assessment, which will identify the recommended number. Our Health & Safety team can support your business by conducting a risk assessment.

No. One of the great advantages of the Emergency First Aid at Work course is that it has no formal entry requirements. As long as participants are physically able to participate in the practical activities, they are able to complete the course.
The course contains crucial areas of emergency response. Your team will learn how to act safely and effectively in emergencies, administer Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), treat an unconscious casualty, manage wounds and bleeding, address shock and choking incidents, tend to minor injuries, utilise first aid equipment, and maintain proper record-keeping.
The aim of this training is to provide a well-rounded understanding of the emergency first aider's role and will also build up skill and confidence.
Practical assessment is a crucial part of the Emergency First Aid at Work course, so there is no hiding at the back of the class. Participants will be evaluated through a combination of theory and practical activities and in a short assessment at the end of the day.
It is recommended that participants wear suitable clothing and footwear for the course to maximise engagement and performance.
An Emergency First Aid at Work certificate is valid for three years. After that, you will need to sit a one-day refresher. If you have team members whose certification is due for renewal, please contact Naomi at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can arrange for those team members to attend a refresher course.
