Course Description

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees if they are injured or become ill at work. These regulations apply to all workplaces including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed. This course will address the needs for a trained first aider in workplaces that are classed as lower-risk such as offices and shops. The information provided in this course is lifesaving and very important in terms of providing a safe workplace. Businesses that do not appoint a first aider or provide the correct facilities for first aid will be putting their own workforce at risk of injuries and even death.
