First Aid and Life Skills

First aid refers to the act of providing assistance to any individual who has suffered a sudden or emergency injury or illness. Within the frame of injury or illness, skills in first aid are applicable to a variety of ailments and circumstances from a small cut on the hand to serious head injury. Both in an outside the workplace, first aid is an absolutely necessary skill.

In dangerous situations, first aid response can significantly decrease the impact of injury for the suffering individual. The benefit of immediate first aid response is so great, that in many nations, legislation, regulation or guidance exists to specify the requirements for first aid training in certain professional settings. For an organization, it is a great benefit to provide First Aid courses for employees and managers. 

First Aid in the Workplace

Employers in all sectors are required to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities for their employees as well as training in how to deliver immediate intervention such as CPR in case of injury or illness. In the United Kingdom, St Johns Ambulance advises that all employers ensure that their employees have first aid skills covering lifesaving procedures, wounds and bleeding, burns and scolds, heart attacks and shock. Many workplaces have an AED device, and it is key that employees know how to use it. 

It is necessary that employers keep up-to-date with changes and advancements to first aid regulations on a yearly basis and ensure that they have a sufficient number of first aiders in the organisation’s facilities and physical environment. First Aid courses cover these requirements and aspects in detail.

In specifically high-risk environments, such as in the construction and manufacturing industries, special attention is provisioned in regulative requirements. Workplace hazards in high-risk environments can be prevented and reduced with the right kind of training for both employees and managers responsible for the safety of their teams. Preparedness in the field of first aid procedure will ensure that employees feel secure and productive.

Maintain a healthy and safe work environment that inspires people

Good practice in health and safety makes good business sense, and in the UK it is law to follow health and safety policies. Employers have legal responsibilities that must be followed with regards to health and safety.
As an owner, managing director or manager with people supervision, you are obliged to provide free health and safety training and supervision for everyone who works for you. With each employee given the right to knowledge in health and safety, employers can expect a working environment that is safe, pleasant and productive.

First Aid courses and training in health and safety can help:

  • Prevent and reduce injuries and recovery time in case of accidents and ill health
  • Reduce and manage absences and sick leave
  • Retain valued staff
  • Instill better employee relations
  • Maintain an organisation's reputation
  • Boost productivity and profits
  • Reduce insurance premiums and legal costs 

In addition to comprehensive First Aid courses, one also has a choice of short courses as they provide all the key information and skills required in less than two days. These courses are offered in London and across the UK.
