First Aid Training Courses in Birmingham

Here at MRS Training & Rescue Swadlincote, we provide a full range of accredited, compliant First Aid Training courses – all designed to provide you with life-saving skills. If you have never taken part in a first aid training course before we recommend you start with a ‘First Aid at Work’ training course. If you have taken a first aid training course in the past and you want to refresh your skills try our ‘First Aid at Work Refresher’ training course.

Alternatively - if you’re looking to progress your first aid skills you can take part in our ‘Emergency First Aid’ training course which is designed to provide low hazard environment workers (e.g. shops, offices, libraries) with the skills required if an emergency situation was to occur.

First Aid at Work (INITIAL COURSE)

All of our courses are fully compliant with the requirements set by the HSE, so you can rest assured knowing your staff will meet and exceed the Health & Safety specifications. We make sure all of our courses are approved by the MPQC awarding organisation, which in turn is approved by Ofqual.

Our ‘First Aid at Work’ training course is the first step to becoming a first aider. The course is designed to provide you with the essential knowledge and skills required to provide first aid in an accident or emergency at work. This is for low risk companies such as office workers and customer service.

After this course you will be able to:

  • Take action in an emergency situation
  • Know and be able to demonstrate basic life-saving techniques
  • Be able to diagnose and manage injuries and illnesses within the workplace.

Do I Need First Aid Training or a First Aider?

Companies with 25 – 50 employees are required by the Health and Safety Executive to have at least one person with the ‘Emergency First Aid at Work’ qualification. In workplaces with a higher number of employees it is recommended that you have numerous fully trained first aiders, reducing the risk of serious implications of lack of first aid trained staff.

It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure adequate equipment, personnel and facilities are provided in preparation for injured staff members, and must be able to provide immediate attention and care. Regular risk assessments must be carried out in the workplace to determine what problems there are and what to provide in aid of them.

As accidents and illness can happen at any time, it’s important that first aid is readily available at all times for workers. Employers have a legal responsibility towards their employees and they must appoint a person to take charge in any incident if this is not themselves.
