The Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing first aid training.
The QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (QCF) qualification (three days) is specifically designed for individuals who wish to act as a first aider in their workplace. Successful candidates will learn how to manage a range of injuries and illnesses that could occur at work and will be equipped with the essential skills needed to give emergency first aid. Employers can book this course for their employees and rest assured that they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities.

What our customers say about us :
“Through my role as HSEQ and training manager for a large construction company I have used Alison Meadows for training regularly for several years. The service is always excellent, the service accommodating and helpful. Training costs compare favourably with other providers and it is helpful to be able to communicate directly with the proprietors and trainers. I will continue to recommend Alison both for my current employer and to my peers at other organisations.”
David Shaw Construction HSEQ manager.
