Workshop TitleEmergency First Aid at Work

Summary of the overall aims of the course

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 requires employers to provide suitable first-aid equipment, facilities and personnel to make sure that assistance is given to employees if they are injured or become ill at work.
