Why is this course so important?

Emergency first aid at work is essential because it’s something that could be the difference between life and death, regardless of where you work. We provide open first aid training sessions across Essex for both individuals and groups, covering a range of different topics including fire safety.

Most people think that emergencies won’t happen to them or anyone they know, which is a mindset that could put you in for a big shock. Whether you work in a hazardous environment or in a safe one, you never know when someone might have an accident in the workplace and be in need of emergency first aid.

As well as learning the essentials, we’d recommend regular emergency first aid at work refresher courses. If you’d like to find out what to expect in these courses, feel free to contact us at any time.


It’s essential to us that all workplaces get access to high quality and tailored training in a budget-friendly way. By constantly reviewing our pricing and tracking the industry changes, we can bring you the most competitive training prices without compromising the standards we have come to be known for.
