Could you live with the loss of someone’s life on your conscience? First aid courses really can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved. Whether it’s a minor situation or something more serious, the knowledge gained from first aid training will give you and your team the confidence to act. You could be the difference between life and death.

The exact level of first aid cover and the first aid course you need should be determined by a first aid needs analysis.

First Aid Training

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require you to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure your employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. All workplaces need to appoint someone to take charge of first aid arrangements. This applies even if you are self-employed or a sole trader. Failure to comply with these guidelines, or a disregard for the safety of your staff, customers, visitors and contractors could result in substantial fines or even prosecution.

You first need to carry out a first aid course training needs analysis which will identify the first aid requirements for your business. Once you have done this, you need to ensure that you are providing the required first aid equipment and have suitable and sufficient arrangements in place. This includes the right number of correctly trained staff.

What Our Customers Say…

First Aid CourseThe Course Was Excellent
The level 3 first aid course was excellent, invaluable and well delivered.  Learning about how to deal effectively and confidently with emergency situations will be very useful when I return to work.  I would definitely recommend Envesca and this course.

Jonathan Trim | Stroud High School



Highly RecommendFirst Aid Course
The Level 3 Emergency First Aid course was delivered by a very knowledgeable trainer in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. I particularly enjoyed the sessions on choking and the update on CPR. I had learnt about abdominal thrusts before but never seen them demonstrated before. A very worthwhile course, which I would highly recommend to everyone.
