CIEH First Aid at Work

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate preliminary intervention if they are ill or have been injured whilst at work. Therefore, suitable people need to be appointed as first aiders, receiving initial training and subsequent updating, in order to fulfil this legislation. 

The CIEH First Aid at Work courses provide this training and updating, including content that focuses on the skills and knowledge needed by first aiders to competently and confidently administer first aid to casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner. The course also covers the importance of conducting scene surveys, the assessment of risk in a variety of situations and different work environments, as well as the specifics of how to treat various illnesses and injuries at work.
