This course is aimed at people who wish to become Emergency First Aiders at Work.  The course is HSE recognised under statutory legislation, and verified/certificated through Qualsafe Awards to give an Ofqual QCF regulated course for easy compliance with HSE regulations.

The course will give confidence and practice in the emergency life-saving techniques that are required in those first few minutes before professional help arrives, but does NOT include some conditions that occur in the workplace, such as asthma, severe allergic reactions, sprains/strains/fractures (including spinal injuries), head injuries and strokes, chest pains(suspected heart attacks), eye injuries, low blood sugar/diabetes, poisons.  Where the first aid needs assessment shows that conditions/injuries such as these are likely to occur, learners should be booked onto a full "First Aid at Work" course.
