First aid at work

We can train first aiders in your business to comply with first-aid at work law. Contact us – we’d be happy to discuss your requirements.

There are two recognised qualifications for workplace first aiders:

  • Emergency first aid at work (one day). Enables a first-aider to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill while at work.
  • First aid at work (three days). Includes emergency first aid at work and also equips the first-aider to apply first aid to a range of specific injuries and illnesses. Please contact us to discuss this course.

Both certificates last three years. Before their certificates expire, first-aiders need to do a First Aid at Work re-qualification course (two days) or an Emergency First Aid at Work course, as appropriate, to obtain another three-year certificate.

  • First aid at work re-qualification (two days). For first-aiders whose First aid at work certificate is due to expire.
  • First aid at work annual refresher (half day). The HSE strongly recommend that first-aiders undertake annual refresher training.
