First Aid at Work Provision

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees should they be injured or become ill at work. These regulations apply to all workplaces including those with five or fewer employees and the self employed.

First Aid at Work Courses across Newcastle and the North

The first aid courses that we offer are ideal for a range of workplace requirements. The courses we offer will give employees the essential knowledge and skills to provide effective first aid in the workplace. The courses we provide are ideal for lone workers, employees in lower risk organisations or individuals who need solid grounding in basic first aid. The first aid at work training we provide will give a good insight into first aid procedures and skills. It will also provide hands-on practical exercises to help the delegates to learn basic life support skills as well giving them the confidence to cope in an emergency.

Qualifications for HSE Regulatory Compliance

It’s vital that employers provide first aid care on their premises for staff and they also have a duty of care towards all visitors and users of their facilities.

Which First Aid course do I or my staff need? 
HSE recommends that all businesses have a First Aider on site; detailed requirements will depend on your business size and what you do. 

How does the employer know which course their staff require? 
Employers are required to undertake risk assessments of the workplace, as well as decide which course to take. For more information, click here.

For many businesses there is a choice of two courses:

Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) 
For those employees in low risk workplaces e.g. offices, shops and call centres. This is a 6 hour (1-day) award. Click here to see our course dates. 

First Aid at Work (FAW) 
For more remote or hazardous environments e.g. light industry, construction, food processing. This is an 18-hour (3-day) award. Click here to see our course dates.

Additionally, all employers are 'highly recommended', by the Health and Safety Executive, to give their staff responsible for first aid an annual 3-hour refresher training. 

As a result of your risk assessment you may decide it would be more appropriate that your staff undertake one of our environment specific first aid training courses because of legislation relating to your work sector or specific environment, e.g. Outdoor, Sports, or Paediatric first aid training. 

Some of our sector specific first aid courses have dual certification, e.g. our ITC Certificate in Outdoor First Aid course and our Emergency First Aid for Sport and Exercise course can include an Emergency First Aid at Work certificate. Inspirational Training can assist you in your assessment of statutory first aid needs. 

First Aid at Work Requalification

With the First Aid at Work qualification there is a requirement to be retrained every 3 years, however this 'Refresher' training course can be for 12-hours as long as it is within 3 years and 1 calendar month of your previous certificate end date.

Basic Skills Refresher

Additionally the Health and Safety Executive 'highly recommend' that first aiders undergo an annual 3-hour refresher course.
