Keeping your first aid training updated will help protect you and your team

Hazard prevention is essential. That’s why Sivatech has developed professionally structured “First Aid at Work” courses that have been certified by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
First aid training is crucial in preventing and managing accidents that occur on the premises of your workplace.

Is first aid training mandatory?

Under the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981, employers are required to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.
