Health And Safety Training | One Day Emergency First Aid
Title: One Day Emergency First Aid
Course Code: SSH01 | Duration: 1 Day

First Aid provision in the workplace saves lives. It can prevent minor problems or injuries from becoming major ones. It can help employers reduce costs from injury. As an employer, you are legally required under health and safety regulations to provide appropriate first aid equipment, facilities and trained personnel in your workplace.

PCS can help you to identify your legal requirements and work closely with you to develop appropriate training for your workplace.

Who Should Attend One Day Emergency First Aid Training?

This course is ideal for the smaller workplaces where the candidates will receive a certificate to become an Emergency First Aider. Fully qualified first aiders will benefit from the additional support from emergency first aiders. This is especially relevant where the workplace may consist of several floors, or work is operated in shifts.
