Workplace First Aid courses
As an employer, you must provide adequate and appropriate first aid equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure your employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.
The law on first aid training changed in October 2013 and has impacted every business and organisation in the UK. These changes mean employers must now accept liability when selecting their own provider of first aid training – a move which means greater flexibility, but also greater responsibility to select the right training provider.
HSE guidance has identified St Andrew’s First Aid Training and Supplies Ltd as a standard setter in the delivery of first aid training which means we ensure you comply with the current guidelines whilst you receive the highest standard of first aid training available. Yes you can train with other providers but in doing so you also accept liability, meaning you must ensure full due diligence has been checked in their delivery of first aid training.
