Essential HSE requirements for workplace emergency

This is a great step towards preparing yourself to effectively handle any workplace emergencies.

This qualification is indeed a great fit for businesses that, according to their risk assessment, don't need a fully trained first aider on site.

The course is designed, delivered, and quality assured in line with the guidelines set by the HSE in October 2017. It also meets the requirements of the First Aid at Work (First Aid) regulations of 1981 and the 2016 amendments.

It's worth noting that the Security Industry Authority (SIA) recognizes this training certificate, making it suitable for those seeking employment in door supervision and security guard sectors.

All Leo Medical - ProTrainings first aid courses are in full compliance with the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021, as required by the HSE. The Leo Medical - ProTrainings Vocational Training Qualifications (VTQ) are fully recognized by the HSE as Trade Body Qualifications.

The course duration is at least 6 contact hours spread over a minimum of 1 day, and the certificate is valid for 3 years. Since May 2016, the HSE and Awarding Organisations have permitted computer-based blended training for all workplace first aid courses.

This qualification is recognized in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and many other countries. The HSE strongly recommends that all first aiders complete an annual first aid refresher course, and Leo Medical - ProTrainings' online course meets this requirement.

Learners undertaking a Leo Medical - ProTrainings course can opt to take a regulated qualification. Please note that the classroom course has a minimum age requirement of 14.

All Leo Medical - ProTrainings courses, including this one, are independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.
