First Aid Courses

On 1st October 2013 the Health and Safety Executive announced big changes to First Aid cover in the workplace. Employers are now responsible for not only risk assessing the volume of First Aid cover but also the type of cover required. Is your organisation properly covered?  Have your staff been appropriately trained for the environment in which they work?

Essex Outdoors can provide a variety of fully certified training courses tailored to suit your personal requirements or the needs of your group or organisation. Our courses are delivered by our highly knowledgeable and experienced team and combine theory with practical and hands on learning to keep you active throughout.
