The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) confirmed on Tues 6th January that training can continue, in order to support the national infrastructure and employers, with meeting health and safety provision in the workplace.


In line with latest HSE Requirements, we are still required to deliver Industry Compliant, Workplace First Aid & Fire Training in order to maintain the safety of the current workforce. Workplace First Aid is classed as an "Essential requirement" by the HSE under FAW Regulations 1981. Training must continue if it can be be delivered in a safe way and guidelines are available to all training providers. To reassure all those training with us, we want you to know that we enforce a minimum of 2 metre social distancing at all times and provide free face masks for participants to wear whilst on our training as part of our robust COVID-19 Policy. We also provide individual disposable face shields and gloves for CPR and use 70% alcohol disinfectant on all of our equipment!

Training at your site of work can also give you reassurance and advantage of knowing that you are reducing the risks of mixing with others while in the comfort of your own surroundings. Contact us for a tailored quotation, totally bespoke to cover your concerns, requirements and needs. We would also like to reassure all attendees that we take the COVID-19 infection outbreak very seriously and have highlighted some of the measures we have in place in order to maintain the continued safety and welfare for all of our participants who train with us. This list is not exhaustive and there are many more systems in place and things we do to protect the safety of all concerned. Feel free to call us and we can discuss these with you.
