Safe Hands First Aid Training Accreditation

The accreditation of our services post HSE withdrawl in October 2013 is seen as essential in demonstrating to Employers the commitment we have to ensuring that they have the very best standard of workplace first aid training.

Safe Hands First Aid Training is approved by Qualsafe Awards to offer Ofqual Regulated Qualifications and meets the requirements of the largest Awarding Organisation for first aid training in the UK.

Awarding Organisations

Qualsafe Awards approves and monitors accredited first aid training companies against the standards for duration, certification and delivery of first aid qualifications in Scotland, England and Wales. In essence, Awarding Organisations have taken over from where the HSE have left off.  Qualsafe Awards carry out their own external quality assurance visits as well as monitoring Safe Hands internal quality assurance procedures.
