Our emergency aid course will highlight some of the most common situations that you might come across and the actions that you can take to help

First Aid Training

What is emergency first aid? Well it's exactly that, the first aid to be offered if an incident occurs. Not many of us are confronted with scenes of blood and gore in our everyday lives - so usually first aid could be as simple as sticking a plaster on a small cut. But what if you did find yourself confronted with a more serious situation? This emergency aid course will highlight some of the most common situations that you might come across and the actions that you can take to help.

In the most serious situations a first aider's role will be to assess the scene, so that accurate information can be passed to emergency services and then to act appropriately to try and increase the patients odds of survival.

This course is aimed at anyone who undertakes work at height, or who employs people who regularly work at height

Working at Height Training

This course is aimed at anyone who undertakes work at height, or who employs people who regularly work at height.

The term work at height applies to a wide range of situations ranging from the obvious ones like working on platforms, ladders, scaffolds or stages to working alongside deep trenches. This is because the crucial thing to understand about work at height is that it's not how far you climb, but how far you can fall. 'Falls' doesn't just mean people falling from heights. If materials or equipment fall, that will obviously present an equally dangerous hazard to anyone below.

All working at height situations are covered by health and safety legislation. Chief among these is the Work at Height Regulations 2005. These regulations confer legal duties on employers and employees to assess, control and minimise risks and hazards from work at height.

This course covers topics including the dangers of working at height, the regulations, the hierarchy of controls, assessing risk and much more.

Working safely is in the interest and concern of all staff both the employers and employees

Working Safely Training

Working safely is in the interest and concern of all staff - both the employers and employees. Although most of the legal duties fall to the employer, Health and Safety law is one of the few pieces of legislation that places duties on the employee as well. There are three reasons for managing risk at work that bring benefit for all concerned - moral; not causing harm to work colleagues, legislative; the law requires it! - And finally financial; all accidents bear a cost to both parties.

Workers have an expectation to go home at the end of the working day not having been injured by any workplace activity. Most workers feel that accidents are something that only happens to other people. The reality is that too many workers are coming to harm by not observing Health and Safety laws and not working to safe systems of work. That's where our working safely course can help.

The course covers why we should work safely, defines hazard and risk, identifying common hazards, improving safety performance and protecting the environment. Training is a big part of changing attitudes towards taking risks in the workplace and can make a real difference.
