First Aid Training

first aid is invaluable for both you and your workplace.

Whether working in a high hazard or low hazard environment, first aid is invaluable for both you and your workplace. The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed. In the event of an accident are you or your employees prepared to assist any casualties? Do you or your employees have the relevant knowledge and training?

Here at Logistics Training Services, we strongly believe it makes good business sense to provide appropriate first aid training to employees and there are many benefits of this. First aid allows those trained to assist an injured or ill person during an emergency situation; this not only benefits employees but the company as a whole. We are aware that not all workplaces require the same course or content as others therefore we provide various courses of first aid training to suit our customers.
