// What we do

The Health and Safety First Aid Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate provisions of first aid to employees within their organisation. The results of your First Aid Risk Assessment will determine if you are required to have First Aiders, and to provide accredited First Aid at Work training to staff. From October 2013 the HSE will no longer accredit First Aid Training, and organisations who require it must ensure they provide OFQUAL accredited First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work training for those staff acting as First Aiders. OFQUAL qualifications have been available since 1st January and are equivalent to those currently offered by the HSE, so will ensure that accidents and injuries continue to be dealt with effectively in the workplace.

This very practical course will enable your learners to use the AED competently and with confidence. Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but it also includes vital training in resuscitation and choking procedures.

We are all exposed at times to some form of manual handling such as lifting, carrying, pulling and pushing actions that can be compounded by simultaneous movements such as climbing or pivoting. Personal injuries resulting from incorrect manual handling in the workplace, accounts for over one million working days lost per year as well as the pain and suffering experienced by the casualties. Correct manual handling techniques can make a huge difference. The risks arising from manual handling have been recognised by the Health and Safety Executive for many years, as evidenced in their regulations and advisory activities promoting good practice. The Regulations require employers to provide their employees with health and safety information and training – supplemented, as necessary, with more specific information and training on manual handling injury risks and prevention. This course provides an ideal approach to safer and more effective manual handling – not only meeting HSE recommendations, but also promoting good and safe practices in any situation.
