We take the stress out of the recommendations by the HSE (First Aid Regulations 1981) that all first aiders in the workplace should refresh their first aid skills every year. Also good for those who are looking to get an introduction to first aid.

This first aid at work refresher training course offers you:

  1. Recap in CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
  2. Recap in the recovery position
  3. Recap in dealing with bleeding and shock
  4. Experience-based scenarios

Our first aid at work training course will teach your staff to deliver emergency first aid at work. All of our sessions comply with the first aid at work regulations 2019, so you can be sure that everything you’re learning is complying with relevant legislations.

Customised training sessions

Here at Vital Workplace Training, what we like to focus on is providing personalised training sessions for our attendees. Over the years, we’ve learned that the best way to deliver successful sessions is to make the whole process as stress-free as possible for our clients.

This is why we travel to where our client’s work and deliver the training session in their own working environment. It allows for the session to be more relaxed and for increased engagement with the course material.

The importance of first aid refresher training in the workplace

It’s recommended for first aid training in the workplace to be refreshed every three years. This is to ensure that employees stay on top of crucial first aid techniques, such as CPR, the recovery position and how to react to emergency situations.

As emergencies can happen in any workplace at any time, it’s essential to always be prepared for the worst-case scenario. Whether you work in an office or a construction site, first aid skills need to be kept up to scratch with regular refresher training.


Here at Vital Workplace Training, we regularly check our pricing to make sure they’re as competitive as possible. Being budget-friendly is something that’s important to us because we know how important it is for workplaces to have the correct training, particularly in light of current events.
