First Aid at Work training provides individuals with skills that can save lives and promote recovery in a casualty. This three day First Aid at Work course provides in-depth coverage of possible workplace accidents and illnesses and their treatment. The mix of theory and practical based learning helps increase understanding and knowledge of first aid procedures.

First Aid at Work training

This 3 day course is suitable for those designated as first aiders in their workplace and who have been identified as needing in-depth training by their employer’s first aid needs assessment. It is also ideal for anyone who would like to learn how to assist casualties outside of the workplace.
