Benefits of Online First Aid Training

THE BENEFITS OF ONLINE FIRST AID TRAINING

Whether you have never received any First Aid training at all, or your existing knowledge is out of date, bridging that skills gap has become easier than ever with online First Aid training courses.

How many times do you hear on the news about rescues because a bystander knew how to perform CPR? Accidents can happen at any time in any place, whether it is in the workplace, or at home.

It is recommended that employers should have one fully trained first aider for every 25 workers within a high risk workplace. As an employer, wouldn’t you feel better if all of your employees knew at least the essentials when it comes to First Aid, after all it might actually help minimise the severity of an injury?

You might have 15 or 150 employees, it doesn’t really matter when it comes to online First Aid training.

Let’s have a look at some benefits:

Cheaper

Face-to-face courses are more expensive, particularly when you spend your time and money on travel.

Flexible

All you will need is an internet connection! This benefits all users but especially those with busy schedules.

Simple and Concise

You may have your doubts about online courses, what if they are too complicated, and who do you ask if you need help? Safety Media online courses are developed with the customer in mind and will be delivered in a simple, easy to understand way.  However, like a few other topics, online First Aid Training does not negate the need for face to face training in the subject in order to be classed as a “qualified” or “site” first aider, more information about assessing your own site’s requirements can be found on the HSE website.

Safety Media offers a First Aid in the Workplace course for both Managers and Employees, covering everything from First Aid Regulations to Abdominal thrusts.
