Did you know that an estimated 629,000 workers in Britain had an accident at work in 2013/14? The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate first aid training. However, having the correct first aid provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff!

First Aid at Work 2

This is a 18 hour course which we generally run over 3 days or 6 x 3 hour sessions. Successful candidates will learn how to manage a range of injuries and illnesses that could occur at work and will be equipped with the essential skills needed to give emergency first aid. What’s more, as a regulated qualification, employers can book this course for their employees and rest assured that they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities for providing quality first aid training, without having to undertake any lengthy due diligence checks introduced in the recent HSE changes. Assessment is ongoing by our First Aid trainer and upon successful completion of this course attendees will be awarded a nationally recognised Ofqual regulated certificate valid for 3 years.

Only £150 plus vat per person!

(price includes awarding body certification, a First Aid handbook to keep and exclusive access to our annual refresher video training)

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!
