This course fulfils the requirement for training staff to the level of an Appointed Person in accordance with the Approved Code of Practice for the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981. It takes a very flexible, practical and common-sense approach to basic life support and dealing with the most common injuries and illnesses the delegate is likely to encounter. The course will be customised so that the delegates’ working environment will always be taken into account when considering the management of any situation. Course organisers can be given the opportunity to select additional course content prior to commencement.
