First Aid Courses Barnard castle
Affordable & effective First Aid training courses since 1990…
Beginning as as small First Aid training provider in the East of England back in 1990, we have now grown to not only cover the whole of England and Wales, but also to be recognised as a first class training provider for First Aid with our customers. We have customers that have been with us since the beginning so we must be doing something right.
The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require you to provide adequate and appropriate first-aid equipment, facilities and trained people so your employees can be given immediate assistance if they are injured or taken ill whilst at work. It is the Employers responsibility to comply with Health & Safety legislation across the UK. The Regulations apply to all workplaces, including those with five or fewer employees, and to the self-employed. It applies to your employees, anybody visiting yor premises including members of the public.
Failing to comply could result in severe fines and / or imprisonment.
