Do you need a First Aid at Work course

You will likely require trained First Aid at Work certificate holders present at all times if…

– You have 50 or more employees
– You have less than 50 employees, but the business involves hazardous procedures such as warehousing, food processing, assembly work, light engineering etc
– The primary role of your business involves interaction with the public.  Here, the HSE strongly advises that employers consider them in their first aid provision plans

The above is by no means extensive.  You may still require a First Aid at Work level first aider at your workplace regardless.  Alternatively, you may need to provide a first aider at a different level of qualification.

As always, we are more than happy to help you decide the correct level of first aid coverage you need.
