HSE REQUIREMENTS

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is the government body that sets the overarching rules on first aid qualifications in the UK. Over the last 10 years things have changed dramatically in the first aid sector in regards to how first aid providers deliver first aid courses. Advised by institutes such as the General Medical Council and the Resuscitation Council techniques are constantly evolving and improving. We stay at the head of the game by constantly reviewing our practices and in house training whilst also drawing on our own extensive experience working in a broad range of extreme environments. Our staff have working experience in professions ranging from combat paramedics to mountain guides.

HSE Training Requirements
LEGAL REQUIREMENTS

As employers it is now commonplace to have first aid trained staff. This is to guarantee a safe working environment for both your staff and your clients.
Depending on your business you can have very different first aid requirements so we have various first aid courses to choose from.
As of 2013 the HSE made changes that primarily put an onus on the individual or employer to establish the most relevant first aid qualification for your particular environment and needs.
To establish the most relevant route for you or your business you should start with a risk assessment. This should highlight the most obvious areas of danger and from there the right course should be clear.
If you are unsure please get in touch and we will help point you in the right direction however we cannot provide legal advice and it will be up to you to make the final decision on which course you need.

OUR PROMISE

All of our first aid courses comply with the latest guidelines from the Resuscitation Council UK and the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Guidance on First Aid 2016.
We are fully qualified to provide accredited and regulated first aid qualifications. Should you require Ofqual regulated certification then we process your certificate through the FAA (First Aid Awards).
