Under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and Approved Code of Practice (ACOP L74), employers have a legal obligation to provide adequate and appropriate First Aid provision to their workforce. Correct First Aid provision can help employers reduce costs from injury, prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones and could save lives.
Each employer is required, by law, to make an assessment of significant risks in the workplace and to decide the level of First Aid cover required at each site. Once this has been established, First Aid at Work training should be undertaken by suitable employees.
Sivatech can provide professional, structured and Certified First Aid At Work Courses, recognised by The Health & Safety Executive, to ensure employers are meeting the legal requirements in protecting their employees and, thus, protecting their business.
Sivatech can also provide various bespoke First Aid Courses for most individual and organisation’s requirements, ie Emergency First Aid for Sports Clubs, Paediatric First Aid and First Aid for Pets.
