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.
