We often get asked about what a company’s First Aid requirements are. This helpful guide by HSE may well answer your questions.
First Aid is a legal requirement for businesses, and an essential life skill for private individuals. If you or a loved one has ever required emergency medical attention then you’ll understand that the skills of a qualified First Aider can mean the difference between life and death.
The First Aid Team is dedicated to providing first class, fully certified First Aid training to companies and individuals throughout Kent and Sussex.
We run regular open courses in Canterbury, Hastings, Maidstone, Orpington and Tunbridge Wells, and can travel throughout the South East to meet the requirements of organisations, groups and businesses.
We are the First Aid Team, and we teach people to save lives.
Having the correct first aid provision in the workplace is not only a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of you and your employees.

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with training me on my first aid course this week. I have been putting it off for years. Now I am glad I have done it and feel confident in helping someone with first aid.
Many thanks and regards
