Training SequenceAll of our courses are regulated by Ofqual through our awarding body Qualsafe as well  as by the SQA which means you can rest assured that you have selected a properly qualified and accredited training provider.  We aim to provide the highest possible standard of first aid training at affordable prices and all of our courses are vetted regularly by an Internal Quality Assessor. Our experienced and professional instructors are all qualified teachers and have a vast knowledge of first aid, having worked in the industry as practitioners and trainers for over 20 years.

We are based in Falkirk but deliver courses all over Scotland.  We can work with you to create a bespoke onsite course which suits your specific needs or alternatively you may prefer to book a place on one of our open courses in Grangemouth.  Open courses are best suited to members of the public, individuals or smaller businesses who only need to train one or two staff at a time.  If you have a larger group, our onsite courses delivered at your premises, will prove more cost effective and time efficient for your business.

If you require assistance to select the most appropriate training for your employees, then please get in touch and we’ll be happy to help. Safe Hands offers inclusive training wherever possible – if you or one of your employees requires special assistance to complete a course please speak to us in advance so that we can make appropriate arrangements for support.

HSE guidance states that employers should ensure first aiders in the workplace ‘remain competent to perform their role’.  The guidance recommends that first aiders attend annual refresher training (annual skills updates) which fulfils this requirement.  Annual refreshers are recommended due to the wealth of evidence on the severity of ‘first aid skill fade’. The flow chart below shows the recommended cycle of training required to keep first aid skills ‘fresh’ and up to date.
