Anyone who works in the building and construction industry should not underestimate how important first aid training is. Having qualified first aiders on-site is a must – not only for meeting HSE guidelines but also for keeping people safer. While you might take every precaution to reduce potential injury risks on site, it is impossible to guard against freak accidents or injuries. With this in mind, emergency first aid training from FACT is something to seriously consider.
But what would anyone taking our course learn and what benefits does it offer?
