With First Aid at Work being so important, it’s common to have a lot of questions about it. To hopefully answer the question you’re looking for, we’ve put together some of the common questions our training experts get asked below.
First aid at work is helping and giving immediate attention to someone who is injured or fallen ill at work, whether it has been caused by their work or not.
Employers need to make first aid arrangements to ensure this can happen and to help prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones.
You can't do the full First Aid at Work training course online. In order to meet first aid at work regulations, appropriate first aid training must include face to face training and assessment of practical skills.
This is why we offer our 3-Day First Aid at Work course as blended learning. This means your first aiders will complete the theory part of the course online and the practical skills required by the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 face to face.
The number of trained first raiders will depend on the risks present in your workplace. It’s best to take a full first aid needs assessment to correctly identify your first aid requirements. The below is just a guideline.
In low-risk environments, there should be one first aider for every 50 workers.
In high-risk environments, there should be one first aider for every 25 workers.
