When considering first aid provision in your workplace you need to do a first aid needs assessment.
There are many areas that need to be considered, the workplace environment,the size of the workplace, the number of employees, the location of your workplace. We can help you decide what training you need, and complete first aid needs assessments on your behalf.

Audiences range from parents, school staff and other first aiders through to dentists, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
This course can be adapted to suit a variety of audiences, from the complete novice to those who are skilled but feel their resuscitation skills need updating.
The training is in line with current Resuscitation Council UK Guidelines.
