Course Overview

An estimated 555,000 injuries happen every single year in UK workplaces.

For this reason, it’s extremely important to have the correct people who are prepared to deal with potentially life-threatening situations, as well as ensuring that other staff have a rudimentary understanding of how to react in an emergency.

Our CPD Accredited First Aid at Work Training is the perfect course for workplaces of all sizes, regardless of industry. Using high-quality video examples, your staff will gain a solid understanding of:

  • the need for a first aider to act safely and effectively when recording incidents, preventing cross-infection, and assessing situations.
  • how to administer first aid to those who are; unconscious, choking, burned, wounded, bleeding or suffering from shock.
  • how to administer first aid for minor injuries (cuts, grazes, bruises, burns).
  • how to administer CPR and how to use an AED.
  • how to administer first aid to a casualty with: injuries to bones, muscles, chest injuries, eye injuries, poisoning, anaphylaxis.
  • recognising signs of a heart attack, stroke, epileptic seizures, asthma attacks or diabetes
