First Aid in the Practice



Course Details

Did you know the Emergency First Aid at Work course was introduced with the Health and Safety Executive's (HSE) legislation changes in October 2009 and replaced the Appointed Person course?

Purpose of the course

Our Emergency First Aid at Work course has been designed to give you the confidence and essential skills needed in order to meet with the HSE’s latest requirements. We include the core aspects needed to provide fundamental training in the key areas of First Aid.

Who should attend?

As an Emergency First Aider, you are responsible for supporting a full First Aider and providing emergency cover in their absence. We will ensure you have the skills and knowledge to do exactly that and more. View our HSE needs assessment to help you decide which First Aid course suits you and your workplace.
