First Aid Training

Who needs First Aid Training?

First Aid Training

Whether you need the full 3 day First Aid at Work course or the 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work, by law you only have to provide First Aid Training to employees and this includes people undertaking work experience or on training schemes.

“All organisations must ensure by law that they have a sufficient number of employees who possess a First Aid qualification to fulfil their First Aid needs at all times. Employers must ensure that their provision is ‘adequate and appropriate in the circumstances’. It is the employer’s responsibility to decide what the requirements of the organisation are by assessing any specific work hazards and ensuring that sufficient equipment, facilities and personnel are available to deal with the consequences of these hazards.” – Highfield Qualifications

No matter how safe your workplace is or how well your risks are managed, employees may be injured or taken ill at work and will require adequate and appropriate attention. Our Approved and accredited First Aid Training Courses are the best way to meet legal obligations regarding First Aid at Work and to ensure staff and team members are confident in taking the correct actions and appropriate measures should anyone become a casualty.

We hold monthly courses a here at our Head Office based in Glossop but can be delivered at a time that is convenient to you at your place of work throughout the UK. All courses are in accordance with the Health & Safety Regulations 1981.
