First Aid and Health & Safety

As of 1st October 2013 the Health & Safety Executive will no longer be responsible for monitoring and approving First Aid Training Providers. It is now the responsibility of employers to ensure the quality of the training they receive. First Action Life Support Training have registered with The First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) who have gained Quality Care Academy (QCA) Approval for the qualifications.

The First Aid and Health & Safety courses we offer are listed on the right-hand side of this page.

In any company the number and type of first aid personnel would be based on a risk assessment. In assessing needs, employers should consider:

  • Workplace hazards and risks
  • Size of the organisation
  • History of accidents
  • Nature and distribution of the workforce
  • Remoteness of site from emergency services
