The HSE requires at least six training contact hours for these first aid courses. On successful completion of this course, you will receive an emergency first aid at work certificate which is valid for three years.
Who is it for?
This course is suitable for people aged 16+ who work in low hazard environments (for example an office or shop) or where Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines indicate staff should hold a certificate in emergency first aid at work. It gives learners the skills and confidence to respond to a range of accidents and first aid emergencies they could encounter in the workplace. If your needs assessment identifies a requirement for additional first aid training, we recommend the three day first aid at work course which teaches the skills to recognise and treat a wider range of injuries and medical conditions.
