Safewell’s Emergency First Aid at Work course is a one-day course. It is suitable for people aged 16+ who might need to provide first aid by responding to a wide range of accidents, injuries and illnesses that they could encounter in their workplace. It is ideal for organisations whose needs assessment has identified a requirement for additional first aid training, such as having employees with a disability or a medical condition. This course also covers treatment for a variety of injuries and medical conditions.

First aid skills acquired

Learners will develop the first aid skills and confidence to help someone who:

is unresponsive and breathing

is unresponsive and not breathing, including CPR and how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED)

is choking

Assessment & Monitoring

The course also includes information on:

Each learner receives a training pack including resources and ideas to help them practice the skills covered. Depending on the course the pack will have different content specific to the type of course attended. For the First Aid at Work courses, the pack includes a course companion workbook, first aid manual.

Each course meets the requirements outlined in the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. The HSE requires a set amount of contact hours that differ for each course. Learners must attend all sessions to be eligible for assessment, which is done by continuous observation and questioning during the course.

On successful completion of each first aid course, attendees receive a certificate which is valid for three years.

The number and type of first aiders are determined by the risks in your business. To help, the HSE publish a useful guide in their First at Work INDG214 Guide and Table 2 from this guide is below to help.

The courses run from 9.30 am until 4.30 pm each day (depending on the course), with a lunch break between the morning and afternoon sessions. Refreshments are provided. At our training facility, the courses are delivered in a comfortable classroom setting with a practical area. All courses offer a practical, hands-on approach to first aid that delivers the skills and confidence to use first aid skills in a real-life situation. For added reassurance, each learner is assessed throughout the course using a range of practical demonstrations, question and answer sessions, quizzes and engaging activities designed to coach and support them. To ensure you get the most effective and practical learning experience we limit group size to 12 people.

We can provide lunch for £10/head, if booked in advance, or bring your own lunch; there is a kitchen, cutlery, water boiler and a microwave. A lunch van also visits daily.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Safewell for providing at short notice two excellent 1-day emergency first aid at work courses for our staff. The training was tailored to our special needs school setting with specific reference to relevant scenarios that might arise. We had a mix of experienced and new staff on the courses, and they said that Scott the trainer was engaging, knowledgeable and catered for everyone in the room. They also specifically commented on his ability to give them confidence and put them at ease. Scott included some defib training within the courses which has saved us spending time and money on a separate course. Based on the feedback from my staff I would definitely use Safewell again and recommend it to others.

We have worked with Safewell for many years and are retained clients, so we have developed an excellent working relationship with the team. However, this really came into its own when Covid 19 appeared.

As a Plumbing and Heating business, we were able to carry on working during the lockdown but only for responding to emergencies. We were obviously very concerned about the health and safety of our employees and before we even had chance to get in touch with Safewell, they had emailed us offering their assistance. It is hard to put down on paper how that made us feel - we like everyone else felt totally at sea, which way to turn, what to do? But Safewell were there guiding, supporting and being totally brilliant. Their attention to detail is very impressive and reassuring and we feel able to ask lots of questions without feeling silly.

During the pandemic Safewell helped us to write risk assessments, safety procedures and protocols. They kept in touch regularly, issuing new guidance as soon as it appeared and checking in with us. They held group Q&A sessions over Zoom which were helpful, and knowing other businesses were facing the same challenges and having the opportunity to discuss issues was invaluable. Their help during the preparation for a full return to work was brilliant, they enabled us to be fully prepared and feel in control, and when we had our first case of Covid within the team, because we had planned our response it felt ok.

I think our team felt very reassured by our robust approach and that our office was Covid secure.
We are extremely grateful to all the team at Safewell
