What course do I need to do?
Which first aid course best suits your requirements will be down to the needs assessment of your business. There are no absolute rules but in general the Emergency First Aid at Work course is suitable for lower risk workplaces while the First Aid at Work course is also suitable for higher risk workplaces. We also offer specific courses for other situations – Outdoor and Paediatric courses for example.
The HSE publication First Aid at Work your questions answered is an excellent place to start when deciding what first aid arrangements you need to make.
