First Aid is an essential skill that we believe everyone can benefit from, at home, at school, at work, even on holiday.
You never know when you’ll need to help someone… it could be at the bus stop, in the office at a meeting, or while you’re out for a walk, shopping or on holiday.
Businesses have a legal responsibility to ensure staff have access to a trained First Aider. Schools are now looking at first aid courses as a priority for both staff and students, and take their duty of care to everyone on the premises as a key consideration. Numerous families can tell a story of a child saving an adult from further injury by knowing how to call the emergency services… let alone parents needing to work out if a child needs a plaster or stitches!
… And what if you’re the first person on the beach when someone needs support until a medical professional arrives on the scene?
Did you know that the Health & Safety Executive estimate over half a million injuries occur at work every year?
