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!

Ideal for those who are able to access CQC (Care Quality Commission) funding, our Level 2 Award in First Aid Essentials (RQF) is a regulated and nationally recognised qualification designed for those who have a specific interest or responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to provide basic first aid in emergency situations.

First Aid Essentials

This is a 6 hour course which we generally run over 1 day or 2 x 3 hour sessions. 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.
