Aims & Objectives
The aims and objectives of the HSE (Health & Safety Executive) First Aid at Work Course are to enable individuals designated as the First Aider at work to carry out appropriate first aid in an emergency situation. Following the course the attendees will be able to manage a casualty who is injured at work, or suffers from a serious illness, until the emergency services arrive. Each on site course is tailored around your workplace where possible.

This can be broken down into bite size chunks of training to suit your requirements. Training must be completed over a maximum of nine weeks.
This course is delivered via a range of techniques including:
- Instructor led presentation

All attendees are required to undertake an assessment on the final day of the course. Both practical and theoretical aspects will be assessed. The assessments are carried out by two external assessors who have not been involved in the teaching of the course. Our assessors are trained to carry out the assessments in a low stress environment and to install confidence in all attendees.
All successful attendees will be awarded a certificate approved by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), this certificate is valid for three years.
