Emergency First Aid at Work

ARC 24 are also accredited to teach and certify the below first aid qualifications as required by the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 (as amended)

Every employer, even those with less than 5 employees, must carry out an assessment of the risk in their workplace and must decide what level of First Aid provision they must provide.

Issues to consider could include they type of work activities taking place, what possible injuries may occur, the size of the workplace, the layout of the workplace and the proximity to emergency services etc.

Consideration must also be given to making sure that there are a sufficient number of trained personnel to cover sickness and annual leave.

Where injuries in the workplace are likely to be relatively minor, such as cuts, then the Emergency First Aider  course may be more suitable than the full 3 day First Aid at Work course.
