Did you know that an estimated 555,000 workers in Britain sustained an injury at work in 2017/18? To help people in these scenarios the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 came into effect and it is now a requirement that all employers must make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate first aid training. However, having the correct first aid provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff!

This course is perfect for anyone who wants to be prepared for workplace incidents and act as a First Aider. Successful candidates will learn how to manage a range of injuries and illnesses that could occur at work and will be equipped with the essential skills needed to give emergency first aid. Our courses will cover everything from how to assess an incident and minor injuries, to how to deal with catastrophic injuries such as head and spinal injuries, heart attacks and strokes.

If you want to want to fulfil your legal requirements for your business or if you want to just want to obtain the essential skills to help someone in need, then this is the course for you.

Would you know how to react in the event of a terrorist attack?

Whenever there is a shooting, stabbing or bomb explosion, the initial priority is understandably to ensure public safety, which can unfortunately cause delays to the emergency services being able to reach the injured.

The Level 2 Award in citizenAID has been specifically developed to help members of the public learn life-saving skills for use in these extreme situations. Based on the citizenAID phone App and pocket guide, this regulated qualification is designed to teach people how to react safely, prioritise the injured and give first aid to victims in the event of a deliberate multiple casualty incident. During this course, candidates will have the opportunity to practise techniques for dealing with catastrophic bleeding and will be equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to save lives in the aftermath of a terrorist attack.
