First Aid Training

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide suitable first-aid equipment, facilities and personnel to enable immediate assistance to be given to employees if they are injured or become ill at work.

Regulation 3(2) states that in order to provide first aid to injured or ill employees ‘..a person shall not be suitable unless he has undergone

  1. such training and has such qualifications as the Health and Safety Executive may approve for the time being in respect of that case or class of case, and
  2. such additional training, if any, as may be appropriate in the circumstances of that case’

If as an employer you need help to assess the level of first aid cover you require for your workplace, the HSE web site offers an assessment tool: http://www.hse.gov.uk/firstaid/assessmenttool.htm


Basic Life Support Instructor courses

Would your organisation benefit from having your own BLS Instructors?
For healthcare professionals we offer a one day course, or for non-healthcare professionals we offer a two day course.

basic-life-support

Aims of the training:

  • To provide you with a sound knowledge of basic life support for adults & paediatrics
  • Make you aware of the learning outcomes that should be achieved on a BLS course
  • Give advice about how to deliver a course, and about essential information required by delegates
  • All training follows the Resuscitation Council UK guidelines in basic life support

NOTE: It is recommended that BLS Instructors are updated annually to ensure they maintain their own skills and knowledge; ECG also offers update training as required.
