Training for the First Aid at Work CertificateFirst Aid at Work Certificate:

Our  course will give your staff the necessary skills and confidence to achieve the first aid at work certificate. Every work situation holds the potential for an accident to happen. This is why the HSE look more favorably on companies that have documented their first aid in the work place policies and procedures.

The critical difference may be whether a business has the people with the required skills and knowledge. This is because  these staff members will be able to respond quickly and calmly to an accident or incident where people are injured or unwell.  Thus enabling them to control the situation until emergency services or medical personnel are available.
