As well as a legal requirement that every employer provides adequate training for their staff, an emergency first aid course allows you the opportunity to prevent minor injuries and accidents from becoming critical issues. From both a health and safety perspective, as well as an economic one, this provision ensures a happier working environment – not to mention the morale boost that comes from workers knowing their employer cares for their wellbeing.
Can you tell me about the course?
It is the obligation of an employer to risk assess their workplace first aid requirements, allowing them to better understand what support and training they need in order to create a safe and comfortable working environment. Obtaining the Emergency First Aid at Work qualification is one element of this obligation. This course helps you to achieve that qualification and is best suited to those who typically work in a small, low-risk environment. If you are interested to know more, you can check First Aid Course London for all the details about training programs, cost, schedule and certifications. I highly recommend them as they have skilled trainers and decades of experience in their field.
As these courses are online and providing the most effective training in the shortest possible time. We recognize the importance of flexibility and will work with you to accommodate your business particular needs.
Who should attend?
In addition to situations where more first aiders are required to support existing first-aid-at-work-trained staff, these online emergency first aid courses are best suited to those working in lower risk environments. A lower risk environment is typically one that is considered low hazard with less than 50 employees. If your business falls into one of the following categories, it is likely that the emergency first aid course will suit your needs:
- Teachers and school ancillary staff
- Retail shops
- Small or medium offices
- Local community organizations
