First aid provides treatment for the purpose of preserving life and minimising the consequences of injury or illness until medical help arrives. It also provides treatment of minor injuries, which would otherwise receive no treatment.

Delegates on this course will receive an attendance certificate to show that they have received training under The Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 (supported by an Approved Code of Practice, revised 1997). Although non accredited, this course is acceptable to the authorities providing a “Needs Risk Assessment/Due Diligence” has been undertaken confirming accreditation is not necessary due to the low level of hazard. Contact us if you need assistance with this and ask for our Needs Risk Assessment form.
