What is the Emergency First Aid at Work course?

The Emergency First Aid at Work course delivers a practical set of skills needed by first aiders in most workplaces. The course meets the standards set out by the Health and Safety Regulations (1981) and the comprehensive teaching creates a confident and skilled first aider in the workplace.

Who should attend the Emergency First Aid at Work course?

This course is a comprehensive introduction to first aid designed for people who want to become skilled and confident in emergency first aid.  It is especially suited for nominated first aiders in smaller, low risk working environments such as shops and offices.

If you work in an environment which identifies additional hazards and risks such as health conditions, then we recommend the First Aid at Work course which covers a more comprehensive range of injuries and illnesses.

This course contains some exercises that are physically demanding. Any candidate unsure of their fitness for such activities should consult their doctor.
