We Have First Aid Available
Ashtree Management Services Ltd provide First Aid Training at your premises for your employees.
Our first-aid courses are fully compliant with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) syllabus, together with guidelines provided by the Resuscitation Council. As a registered centre with Highfield Qualifications we provide Ofqual regulated First Aid training courses with accredited certification lasting 3 years. With well over 3 decades worth of industry experience and trainers operating throughout England & Wales, we have seen many changes to the industry that have come, gone and not surprisingly returned.
Employers must provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to workers if they are injured or become ill at work. The Regulations apply to all workplaces across all sectors, including those with five or fewer employees, and to the self-employed.
An employer must provide at least one first-aid kit for each workplace they’re operating in Dorset. Depending on larger sites in Gillingham, additional kits may be required. Each kit that is provided should be stocked with suitable contents which are checked & recorded periodically, eack kits contents may be slightly different but must be appropriate to the workplace environment as determined by your Risk Assessment ie, the contents would be different for an office compared to a kitchen compared to an automotive garage.
It is a legal requirement that every employer in the UK, regardless of the number of employee’s, is obliged to plan for the provision of First Aid within their working environment. Employers are also reminded that they must ensure qualified First Aid personnel are always available at your Gillingham or Dorset sites to provide or arrange for first aid. Suitably qualified person(s) must always be available to cover absenteeism, sickness and holidays.
Ashtree can provide full support in recommending the appropriate First Aid course which fits in with your objectives. This can range from a full 3 day accredited First Aid at Work course to our 1 day non-accredited First Aid in Schools. Full certification is provided on successful completion of all of our training sessions and lasts for 3 years.
We can also provide non accredited courses if these are more suitable for your organisation, contact us for our “Needs Assessment/Due Diligence” form.
