Details on first aid training courses both for staff and commercially as well as the training facilities used and the Law governing first aid in the workplace.
In the workplace, in order to comply with the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, employers must ensure that there is adequate first aid cover in all work areas.
John Nimmo our First Aid trainer joined the Department in 2006. He undertakes all the first aid training in-house.
In 2012 John won the St Andrew's First Aid Inaugural Scottish First Aid Award for the Public/Non-profit Sector. The Scottish First Aid Awards have been created to champion First Aid in Scotland and recognise those individuals and businesses that are leading the way in its provision.
John is available for advice and guidance on any first aid issue.
The Training and Audit Unit is also able to tailor courses to your particular work area, for example, Paediatric First Aid training for the University Nursery Staff.
Please get in touch if you require specific training not detailed here.
