What first aid course should you choose?
All businesses, no matter what the size, are legally required to have appropriate measures in place to help immediately if someone falls ill or hurts themselves at work. Because all businesses are different, working out exactly what these appropriate measures are can be a challenge. That’s why we’ve developed a free online training requirements calculator in collaboration with Qualsafe.
Our first aid calculator gets to the roots of your training needs in just three steps and instantly emails you a report which provides a full breakdown of how many first aiders you need and what kind of training they require.

How often is first aid training needed?
First aiders need to retake their qualification every three years. We also recommend that they take our 3.5 hour annual refresher as well as our first aid refresher e-learning course. The e-learning course can be taken at any time and is an excellent way of keeping knowledge fresh, as delegates tend to lose confidence over time.
Why is first aid training at work important?
First aid skills save lives. Whether it’s knowing how to tie a tourniquet to stop life-threatening bleeding, how to administer CPR on a child, or feeling confident with an AED: the fact is, you never know when these skills might be needed.
First aid is a valuable life skill. In workplaces it is vital, and required by law, to provide adequate equipment, facilities and personnel to give casualties immediate attention. This law applies to all workplaces, even those with fewer than five staff members.
Don’t take a risk. Book a first aid course today to equip your staff with the necessary skills to keep your workforce healthy and safe.
