Anyone interested in becoming a First Aider in a low-risk or high-risk work environment should take the First Aid at Work course. A building site or a warehouse, for example, is considered a high-risk work environment because of the higher chance of First Aid emergency scenarios and accidents. The training complies with the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations of 1981, allowing you to operate as a First Aider in either a high-risk or low-risk workplace.
If you are working in a low-risk work environment such as an office, we would recommend attending the Emergency First Aid at Work course which is a 1-day course and covers the basics of First Aid.
A variety of interesting and dynamic teaching approaches, such as real-life scenario scenarios and videos, will be utilised to guarantee that you have acquired the skills and knowledge necessary to become a proficient First Aider. On the first and third days of the course, there will be two multiple-choice tests.
Each delegate will obtain a certificate that passes the Health and Safety (First Aid) 1981 Regulations for being a First Aider in a low-risk workplace after finishing the First Aid at Work course. Certificates are valid for three years and are accredited by the First Aid Industry Body by default (FAIB).
