Our customers are always wondering which first aid at work course to take. It’s never a simple answer!

We offer both the 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work and the 18 hour, 3 day First Aid at Work Course. So which one do you need for your workplace.

Every business with over 5 employees needs a first aider who has taken a recognised first aid at work course.

The HSE have stated that it is the employers responsibility to assess its first aid at work’s requirements and make appropriate arrangements.

In assessing your first-aid needs, you should consider:

  • the nature of the work you do
  • workplace hazards and risks (including specific hazards requiring special arrangements)
  • the nature and size of your workforce
  • the work patterns of your staff
  • holiday and other absences of those who will be first-aiders and appointed persons
  • your organisation’s history of accidents

You may also need to consider:

  • the needs of travelling, remote and lone workers
  • the distribution of your workforce
  • the remoteness of any of your sites from emergency medical services
  • whether your employees work on shared or multi-occupancy sites
  • first-aid provision for non-employees (eg members of the public).

This guide should help you figure out what you need.
