Safety Courses

First Aid

  • Course Duration: 1 – 3 Days


Health & Safety at Work is a big subject in all industries. First Aid coverage in the workplace is a legal requirement. Sigma offers all types of main first aider HSE‐approved courses; for a full list please call us.

As of the 31st December 2016 there is a requirement that all workplace first aiders are to be trained in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), with AED’s being made available within many workplaces and public spaces it is good practice for EFAW & FAW first aiders to be trained how to use them. Also to be included within these two popular courses will be a module on Paediatrics.

Please contact us for course dates.
