First Aid training Course

Training Courses

Most companies will offer health and safety training for their employees. But often First Aid and CPR are frequently overlooked. First Aid and CPR training are important for all employees and apply to every industry regardless of size. Whether the workplace is located on a construction site, in a factory or in a traditional office, every organisation has employees who will benefit from First Aid Training, accidents do happen and it is not not a matter of “if,” but “when!”.  First Aid training for your employees is essential for workplace safety.

Benefits of First Aid Training for Employees

  • It may saves lives: First Aid training provides your staff with the confidence and capability to react immediately to an incident, injury or illness. In the event of a medical emergency, when properly trained, a fellow employee can administer basic medical treatment or CPR (as needed) It’s been proven that CPR provided during critical and life-threatening accidents, injuries or health complications, in the workplace, may save lives.
  • First Aid Kits will have what is needed: Not only does First Aid Training teach your employees how to respond to a medical emergency, but it also teaches them exactly what should be in the First Aid Kit.
  • Safety while working alone: First Aid Training teaches employees how to properly use First Aid Kits, how to administer life-saving medical treatments and to stay calm and confident during an emergency. While these skills are important for providing First Aid to others, they also come in handy for employees working alone. First Aid Training can help an employee buy time until First Responders arrive.
