Course Information

First Aid at Work

The Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work is a two-unit, three-day course that will enable successful candidates to act as a first aider in their workplace in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Health and Safety (First Aid) regulations 1981.

This First Aid at Work training course is the comprehensive level first aid course for training individuals to act as first aiders within the workplace. It is a 3 day (18 hour) course, designed to equip a person to take on the full role of a workplace first aider with comprehensive skills as per Health & Safety recommended guidelines.

This qualification certifies the first aider for a 3 year period from the date of qualification.

The course is both informative and fun, and delegates are actively encouraged to contribute (we don’t like death by PowerPoint any more than the next), and student feedback indicates we’re doing it right.

Scott Townley,

"Southwest Health and Safety was recommended by a friend, still serving within our HM Forces. I was searching for a professional company to help me gain health and safety qualifications and also with my transition from Military to Civilian Street. I spent 2 separate weeks completing IOSH Managing Safely and Level 3 First Aid at Work. Southwest Health and Safety provided excellent facilities for both courses and also the instruction was very professional with both classroom and practical aspects throughout. Both instructors were excellent with their subject knowledge and approach towards both courses. Southwest Health and Safety is highly recommended for a training provider and will be there 100% all of the way to accommodate your training needs, and advise where necessary. The company will also help with military, wanting to use Standard Learning Credits towards qualifications. 10 out of 10 for this Company and look forward to my next course with them."
