Construction industry first aid courses

Construction industry first aid course has almost unique requirements. With 30 construction workers killed in the UK in the reporting period 2016/17, the construction industry is the deadliest industry in the UK once again.

All but the smallest of sites require a trained first aider, whether the Emergency First Aid at Work or the full First Aid at Work.

Lazarus Training runs both these courses and the recommended Basic Life Support updates for qualified first aiders. Our training is designed to combat the secondary problem for first aid provision in the construction industry: memory retention. Many first aid training providers will offer a classroom based course covering the basic requirements, but our training courses are scenario based and ensure everyone is engaged and learning.

All our training can be adapted to reflect your specific needs such as identified risks, or using your specific first aid equipment.
