- 18 hours of class
First Aid at Work for workplaces with a high hazard rating
First aid training is required by law for all companies and businesses. The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees if they are injured or become ill at work. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with five or fewer employees and to the self-employed.
First Aid Academy is approved by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to run First Aid at Work training courses under approval centre number FAAMS 1670/96.
Employers need to provide first aid care on their premises for staff and have a duty of care towards all visitors and users of their facilities. Many organisations send one or two individuals on these 18 hour courses.
