It is a legal requirement* for workplaces to have a trained first aider on hand. Our first aid courses provide practical, hands-on learning combined with theoretical knowledge and aim to develop ability and instil confidence and a sense of responsibility in workplace first aiders.

Our experienced team of first aid trainers will help your employees reach the highest levels of competence workplaces require to ensure your business is compliant with current legislation.

Successful completion of a first aid course will also empower the employee. They will go forward with the knowledge that may help them save the lives of colleagues, family, friends or strangers, should the need arise.

How to book a course
Our experienced trainers deliver our first aid courses at MOHS’ training centre in West Bromwich. If you have several employees who require training, we can deliver group training sessions on your premises. The maximum is normally 12 delegates per session, as per IOSH guidelines.

First aid at work regulations
The Health and Safety Executive offers advice about what type of training your organisation needs. As a quality training provider, MOHS complies with all standards and meets necessary legal obligations.

Legal compliance
*Compliance with first aid at work legislation is statutory for all UK businesses and the type of training required will be dependent upon a risk assessment.

Organisations should select first aiders who: are generally fit and healthy, possess an aptitude to absorb knowledge and skills, can cope with stressful and physically demanding emergency, procedures, have duties that do not prevent them going immediately to an emergency, have a good knowledge of English. We also advise organisations to appoint additional first aiders to cover absences

Visit the HSE website for information to help you choose the right level of cover for your business.
