Emergency First Aid at Work Course Overview

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 state that all employers (including those with fewer than five employees) provide ‘adequate and appropriate’ first-aid facilities, staff and equipment.

To comply with these regulations, employers must ensure that an employee who is injured or taken ill at work receives immediate attention. Our Emergency First Aid at Work course is a certificated course which will help you to meet the legal requirements to provide first aid in the event of injury or sudden illness.
