Book Your Training Course
“I was extremely impressed by the first aid training, I learnt so many useful and potentially lifesaving skills. Keeping us all interested at 8am is no easy task but Debra was very open and approachable, providing the training in an engaging way! I would definitely recommend this course and hope to receive further training from Be First Aid Ready.”
“Professional but friendly approach to first aid training. The course was tailored very well to our audience and delivered in such a way that we all left feeling confident about executing our responsibilities as first aiders.”
Sarah Perkins – Office Assistant
“The Paediatric First Aid course delivered by Debra Murr on 20th January was informative and interesting. She managed to hold everyone’s attention during the six hour course with a good balance of practical training, video clips and personal anecdotes. It was all delivered in a reassuring and pragmatic way which instilled confidence.”
“I just wanted you to know that our 2 members of staff who attended your First Aid training yesterday have spoken very highly of the instructor. They have both given really good, enthusiastic feedback regarding the whole day.”
Frequently asked questions.
Sometimes you may have questions about a First Aid Course that you are interested in booking, so we have put together a few a few answers to questions that have been asked in the past.
1. What are the penalties for not meeting first aid at work regulations?
Breaches of the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 are dealt with proportionately. Enforcement action could include the issuing of a notice or prosecution if the circumstances warrant it.
2. Is annual refresher training a mandatory requirement?
No. It is strongly recommended to employers to help trained first aiders maintain their basic skills and keep up to date with any changes in first-aid procedures.
3. How many first-aiders do I need?
The findings of your first-aid needs assessment will help you decide how many first-aiders are required. There are no hard and fast rules on exact numbers and you will need to take into account all the relevant circumstances of your particular workplace.
4. How do the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 relate to first-aid provision in schools?
Employers are responsible for the provision of appropriate first-aid equipment, facilities and first-aid personnel in respect of their employees – this includes schools, as they are workplaces. Although the Regulations do not require employers to provide first aid for anyone else, HSE strongly encourages employers to consider non-employees when carrying out their first-aid needs assessment and to make provision for them.
5. Maintenance of training quality?
Whilst HSE is confident that the existing first aid at work training (ie emergency first aid at work (EFAW) and first aid at work (FAW) meet the needs of the majority of businesses and remain the building blocks in the provision of first aid at work training, employers have the flexibility to choose whatever level of first aid training is appropriate for their business need and circumstances.
