First Aid

The latest guidance for first aid provision in schools and the workplace

The First Aid Quality Partnership (FAQP) met on the 5th January 2021 to discuss the impact of the latest lockdown restrictions on the delivery of First Aid training. The key message resulting from this meeting was:

The provision of First Aid qualifications can continue to be delivered in line with existing COVID-secure guidelines.

The HSE and DfE have not relaxed their rules on maintaining adequate first aid provision in the workplace. Therefore, whenever an employer needs to maintain mandatory first aid provision by sending a first aider on a relevant first aid training course (whether on furlough leave or not), this should be the primary driver behind Centres continuing to deliver training courses during the lockdown period.

Covid secure

We all need to feel safe in any environment to be confident in the job we do and to grow as professionals.

For me, COVID 19 has reinforced the good practice procedures I have adhered to as standard. Ensuring all who attend our course feel safe.

Here at Willhan Training we take our cross-infection duties extremely seriously. See our covid secure policy.

Re-opening after lockdown:

Business, leisure centres gyms and many more businesses will reopen and will people just wanting to get out again.

First Aiders &amp; Paediatric First Aiders are a legal requirement and will be needed after lockdown, being training now in readiness for re-opening will prevent having to release staff, loose wages and time away from your job role when lockdown is eased.
