Does your business need anyone to be trained in First Aid?

 HSE publications L74 and INDG214 provide general guidance on how many first aiders or appointed persons an employer might need and whether first aiders should be trained in FAW or EFAW. It is ultimately for the employer to assess the first aid needs of the workplace, and any employer should take into account all relevant information to make a valid assessment of their first aid needs

HSE LAC 28/1 July 2009

Does your school need anyone to be trained in Paediatric First Aid?

Guidance issued by OFSTED and Sure Start recommends that organisations caring for young children have first aiders trained on a 12 hr duration course with specific relevance to Babies and Children. There should be sufficient First Aiders so that at least one person who has a current FABC first aid certificate can be on the premises at all times when children are present. There also must be at least one person on outings/visits who has a First aid for Babies and Children certificate. Certificates must be renewed every 3 years.

Our  FABC course has been specifically written by us to meet the needs of your school and your staff and endorsed  by the National Awarding Body EDI- the course meets all of the requirements laid down by OFSTED and Sure Start.
