Why Does First Aid Training Matter?

First aid training is important, and you would be hard-pressed to find an employee in your workplace who disagrees with this notion. Why then, are so many people lacking in the appropriate first aid training? Confidence can play a huge part but so can the lack of willingness of companies to invest in the right training. If you have a West Midlands base for your workplace, our course for first aid at work in Staffordshire would boost your workplace in dealing with accidents and injuries appropriately.

It Can Reduce the Number of Accidents

Ultimately, all management wants to reduce the number of accidents that occur in the workplace. Statistics released for 2020/2021 found that in the UK, 441,000 non-fatal workplace accidents were reported. This figure is far too high. The awareness of potential accidents and behavioural change inspired from our first aid at work in Staffordshire course helps all attendees to prevent foreseeable accidents from taking place. When influential members of staff take part or those with social standing in particular, your workplace is empowered even more with inspired action that prevents staff injury.

It Boost Crisis Confidence

While some accidents are foreseeable, many cannot be predicted. The course – whether you take the 1 day, 2 day, or 3 day iteration, even covers severe situations such as heart attacks, anaphylaxis, choking and more. Ordinarily, the average person’s confidence in handling these situations would be low because they dread it ever happening in front of them. Our course prepares them for the idea that it could, and if it did, they would know how to respond. It also helps attendees to rehearse how to act in other types of crises as dealing with emergency situations is a skill.
