There are many factors to consider when trying to establish how many first aiders are needed in your setting. Click here for more information about First Aid provision in the workplace. We also have a First Aid Requirements Calculator online tool that allows you to simply and accurately calculate how many First Aid at Work First Aiders you need and the level of training they require.

Here at GEM Compliance Training, we deliver a wide range of regulated First Aid training courses that award Ofqual regulated certificates that are nationally recognised including by governing bodies such as Ofsted, Health and Safety Executive etc.

At our training venues in Bradford, Bingley, Keighley, Skipton, Halifax and Huddersfield, we regularly hold regulated First Aid public courses, including Paediatric First Aid, First Aid at Work and our all new combined First Aid Courses to name a few. These are open to anybody wishing to book a place as an individual or group.

We pride ourselves on our flexible approach in meeting our client’s needs, which is why we can also arrange to deliver our First Aid training courses in your workplace to groups at a time to suit you, whether that’s during business hours, on an evening or a weekend. We can also provide bespoke training packages and offer discounts on block bookings.

Coronavirus Information – As you will be aware, the UK Government have issued further advice for the public and workplaces in relation to COVID-19. The government have advised against ‘social gatherings’ for people to work from home ‘where possible’. Also the advice for those who should self-isolate has been increased.

We should note that First Aid Training is not a ‘social gathering’. It is essential training that is needed by workplaces, particularly when it is not possible for staff to work from home. First Aid Training is essential training that is needed particularly by workplaces where it is not possible for staff to work from home, and particularly when there are severely extended ambulance response times due to the crisis. As such it is NOT a ‘social gathering’.

We have implemented a 10-step plan to ensure hospital-grade infection prevention and control on your course with us. We will teach you about COVID-19 infection prevention and control. This is not only included in the course free of charge – it is the FIRST lesson on the course!

We just wanted to reassure all delegates of our First Aid courses, before attending, that we are taking extra steps to ensure the protection of yourself and others to maintain high standards concerning hygiene through this time. We have always maintained the highest standards of cleanliness with all our training equipment, but in addition to our usual hygiene processes which include regularly using disinfectant wipes and changing manikin lungs, we are also now offering all delegates the opportunity to use a face shield. Currently, guidance from the Resuscitation Council recommend that training, including mouth to mouth resuscitation, still goes ahead as long as good hygiene is followed. We look forward to seeing you on our upcoming GEM First Aid courses!
