Regardless of whether an injury or illness has been caused by work, it is important that employees receive immediate support.

The purpose of first aid is to administer assistance to minimise the consequences of injury and illness until qualified medical help is available.

Our First Aid Awareness course will help you educate your staff on basic first aid awareness to ensure they react appropriately in case of a workplace incident.
