HSE Emergency First Aid at Work picture


Suitable for people 16 years and over, this course is designed for anyone wanting to become an accredited first aider or appointed person.

Staff who work in lower hazard environments, have fewer staff or where NGB or HSE guidelines indicate staff should be trained and hold a certificate in emergency first aid at work.

Please note, if you have staff members with asthma, allergies, diabetes or a heart condition - and these are detailed in your risk assessment - the NGB'S and HSE recommend that you consider completing the three-day first aid at work course.

This is because these conditions are no longer covered in the first aid for appointed persons or emergency first aid at work course.
