This is the most popular first aid qualification. The Emergency First Aid at Work qualification is the choice of many organisations to ensure they are meeting the requirements of the Health and Safety (first aid) Regulations.
It is ideal for those who need to meet the minimum requirement of first aid regulations; typically those working in shops, offices and other low risk environments. Don't forget that if you are holding an event it is essential that you consider visitors to your premises in your First Aid provision. For more information please refer to The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulation.
