In line with latest HSE Requirements, we are still required to deliver Industry Compliant, Workplace First Aid & Fire Training in order to maintain the safety of the current workforce. Workplace First Aid is classed as an "Essential requirement" by the HSE under FAW Regulations 1981. To reassure all those training with us, we want you to know that although restrictions have now been removed, our aim is to maintain a CAUTIOUS approach to our training for the foreseeable future. We continue to offer/provide free face masks for participants to wear if necessary whilst on our training as part of our robust COVID-19 Policy. We also provide individual disposable face shields, for CPR and use 70% alcohol disinfectant on all of our equipment. We will even offer you a free temperature check on arrival if we feel the need or you or your fellow participants would like one!

Training at your site of work can also give you reassurance and the benefit of knowing that you are reducing the risks of mixing with others while in the comfort of your own surroundings. Contact us for a tailored quotation, totally bespoke to cover your concerns, requirements and needs. We want you to know that we will not let down our guard in our ambition to keep all of our customers and attendees safe and that we will continue to take the COVID-19 infection outbreak and any others very seriously. We continue to highlight some of the measures we have in place in order to maintain the continued safety and welfare for all of our participants who train with us. This list is not exhaustive and there are many more systems in place and things we do to protect the safety of all concerned. Feel free to call us and we can discuss these with you.

Appointed Persons First Aid Course

A course of 4 hours duration which qualifies you as the Appointed Person to take charge when someone is injured or falls ill at work.

Particularly suited for low/medium risk establishments where an official workplace first aider is not legally required or to compliment your existing provision.

Who should attend?
This course is designed for low risk environments where it is assessed that there is no requirement for a Emergency First Aid or First Aid at Work trained first aider to be present. However, even if a First Aider is not legally required, an employer must still appoint a person to take charge of first aid provision.

What you will learn?
This certificate provides delegates with basic theoretical and practical skills in current first aid. It is designed for employers who wish to provide the highest standard of first aid care to employees, contractors and the public. It is also ideal for individuals and lone workers and is often the minimum requirement for sports coaches, instructors and support workers.

Course Content:

  • Aims and principles of first aid.
  • What to do in an emergency.
  • Casualty Assessment.
  • Unconsciousness.
  • Asphyxia - care of a choking casualty.
  • CPR.
  • Wounds and Bleeding.
  • Maintaining first aid kits.
  • Maintaining accident records.

Course duration
Four Hours.

By the end of the course the delegate will be able to:

  • Give emergency First Aid to an injured person until medical assistance arrives.
  • Recognise and appropriately treat basic emergency situations.
  • Carry out the duties of an Appointed Person as specified within the First Aid Regulations 1981.

There is no formal assessment as this is not required by the HSE.

Successful completion of the course qualifies the holder to act as an 'Appointed Person' in the workplace. This is an attendance certificate and is not an official first aid qualification. This training course enables you to assist a casualty in the workplace until an ambulance arrives.The certificate is valid for three years from the date of issue.
