What is First Aid

"First aid is the initial or immediate assistance given to someone who is injured or taken ill before the arrival of medical assistance in the workplace".

The main aims of first aid are to:

  • Preserve Life
  • Alleviate Suffering 
  • Prevent condition from worsening 
  • Promote Recovery 

Under the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 employers must:

  • provide adequate first aid equipment and facilities dependent upon hazards in the workplace and the size of the company.
  • produce a risk assessment of first aid needs

This one-day course will help you meet your regulatory requirements if your risk assessment indicates that first aid training covering emergency protocols only is sufficient for your workplace.
