First Aid at Work Course (Initial)
First aid cover is a legal requirement for all workplaces. The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel, to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This first aid course is especially suited for nominated first aiders in medium or large high-risk working environments, such as construction sites.
Our 3-day First Aid at Work course gives learners the vital skills necessary to diagnose and treat injuries or illness, with an emphasis on dealing with life-threatening situations until professional help arrives.
AEDs in the workplace are becoming more commonplace within dental practices. With around 13% of workplace deaths being due to the victim suffering from a cardiac arrest, it is surprising how few businesses provide this vital life-saving piece of equipment. If your practice does not have one yet, take a look at our article about AED's in the Workplace.
