Course Enquiry

Courses are available at our modern training facility in County Durham or at your own premises.

Since the 1st October 2009 the first aid regulations have changed and the HSE have restructured the First Aid at Work Course, and it will now be delivered over 3 days.

All employers still need to continue to ensure a sufficient level of First Aiders in the workplace to meet the needs of their risk assessment.

You may need to reassess your company's first aid needs and the number of first aiders in your workplace.

There should be a first aider available to take control of all first aid arrangements at all times when people are working.
