AoFAQ Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (QCF)

First aid at work training is often a requirement of even the smallest of workplaces, which must make arrangements for action in event of an emergency, provide a first aid kit and possibly provide trained workplace first aiders. The Health and Safety Executive continue to set the “standards” for first aid at work training, but it is now down to the employer to decide whether the training provider is capable of delivering the training.

As an AOFAQ approved first aid training provider Lazarus Training provides a number of workplace first aid courses, all run in a highly practical and interactive way, by training staff with relevant qualifications and experience. All our first aid courses are aimed at making you confident to provide first aid at work when required.
