Annual Refresher Training

Due to the wealth of evidence on the severity of ‘first aid skill fade’, the HSE now state that first aiders should remain competent in their role and strongly recommend that all current First Aiders attend annual refresher training during any three-year FAW/EFAW certification period. Although not mandatory, this will help qualified first-aiders maintain their basic skills and keep up-to-date with any changes to first-aid procedures.

We have regular 3 hour open sessions you can join or we can deliver an in-house update for any sized group.

Annual refresher training (Covid)

If first aiders are unable to access annual refresher training face to face during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, HSE supports the use of online refresher training to keep their skills up to date.

HSE still strongly recommends that the practical elements of actual FAW, EFAW and requalification courses are delivered face to face, so that competency of the student can be properly assessed.

Defibrillation

All our courses now include training at different levels in the use of a defibrillator (AED). Obviously, you do not need to acquire a machine for the workplace but it is useful to understand how the defibrillator fits into the chain of survival. It will also give you confidence should you ever need to use a community AED.

We are happy to advise the pros and cons of having a machine on your premises as this is much more affordable now. We can help with info on the different machines, their costs, and the training involved.

We also offer a stand-alone certificated AED course for those customers who would like more detail and practice time. Please speak to Julie or Lee for details.

Mental Health First Aid

Mental health is as important as physical health!

Each year approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health condition and at least 1 in 6 employees experience common mental health problems in the workplace.

Research has shown that work is the biggest cause of stress which can stop people performing at their best.

Mental health conditions are often hidden due to stigma and fear of discrimination and research has shown that a culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidance ‘First aid needs assessment’ refers to mental health in the workplace.

We are now offering accredited mental health first aid training at three levels; L1 Awareness (4hrs), L2 FA for Mental Health (1 day) & L3 Supervising FA for Mental Health (2 days)
