Having some awareness of first aid is a life-saving skill that is crucially important in both the home and workplace. At Phoenix Safety Services, we offer our clients life-saving first aid training via awareness courses so they have the knowledge and confidence they need to react and deliver critical care in a medical emergency. You can study a variety of first aid courses with us, whether you are a complete beginner or an already-qualified first aider who needs a refresher course. We always ensure those studying on our courses have a comprehensive understanding of the practical knowledge and skills they require to react in a medical emergency, whilst meeting the needs of your business.

For those who are new to first aid, we recommend our first aid awareness course, which takes the form of a general introduction to providing medical assistance. It is also ideal for those who feel a basic knowledge of first aid is sufficient for their workplace. This course is designed to provide delegates with a general understanding of the principles of first aid so they can provide medical assistance, even when another more experienced first aider is unavailable. The course covers record keeping and accident reporting, as well as the basic principles of first aid and initial observations. It also covers:
- How to manage an unconscious casualty
- Treating bleeding and various wounds
- Treatment of minor injuries
This course is a four-hour half day programme. Following completion of the course, a final exam does not have to be taken, but there are regular assessments made by the course tutor, who delegates can contact if they have any questions. The course gives delegates the skills and tools they need to react and deliver medical aid in an emergency.
At Phoenix Safety Services we can create bespoke first aid programmes and training packages based on your business needs. Our trainers are all qualified in health and safety and selected for their depth of knowledge and ‘hands-on’ experience to ensure that courses always stay relevant and engaging to delegates.
