The one-day Emergency First Aid At Work Course is designed for anyone wanting to become a qualified first aider or appointed person. It is suitable for smaller, lower risk environments than the HSE First Aid At Work Training Course. The course is perfect for environments that have a smaller number of staff members.

The HSE Emergency First Aid At Work Course will help meet your regulatory requirements if a risk assessment indicates that first aid training covering emergency protocols only, is sufficient for your workplace.
