Workplace First Aid Training

First aid training is not just about receiving a certificate. it’s a life skill which gives you the essential tools to help people who are injured or unwell at work. You could even save someone’s life.

First Aid at Work Training is integral to maintaining a healthy, safe, and happy work environment. As an organisation it is important to conduct a risk assessment and commission your training based upon the results. The most basic of courses is the 1-day Emergency First Aid at work course and for the organisation that is larger or runs high-risk operations, the comprehensive 3-day First Aid At Work will be better suited. All of the courses include a module on the use of an AED (automated external defibrillation) including a demonstration.
