Course Aims

    This course has been designed with the core aim of creating a confident and motivated, professionally qualified first aider for the workplace.

Course Introduction

The First Aid at Work Regulations 1981 require all employers and the self employed to make first aid provisions for their staff at work.

Solutions are a Health & Safety Executive approved first aid at work training provider. This course has been designed to ensure you have a person at work that is confident and competent to deal with an emergency. It is not a substitute for a qualified first aider. However, a person with appointed persons training may cover the short term absence of a first aider.

The course centres on training staff to recognise and manage both life threatening situations and other incidents that may occur in the workplace. The content is line with the revised Resuscitation Council protocols of December 2005.

It is only delivered by trainers who either qualified as ambulance paramedic, or nurse tutors. The company does not use lay / non professional instructors. This means that the trainers are able to share years of practical experience with the participants.

Please note that all participants have access to an incident debrief help line. This is designed to allow people trained by Solutions to talk through any incident they may have been called upon to assist with.

Optional additional modules are available to this course - please ask for more details
