Tidal Training First Aid Courses

First aid is defined as the help given to a sick or injured person until full medical treatment is available. The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require an employer to provide suitable first aid cover in the workplace. Equally importantly, prompt attention and treatment can define the course of recovery for the casualty.

Our Qualsafe Awards Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF) training courses satisfy the need for staff working in a higher risk environment such as businesses operating in sectors such as distribution to manufacturing and a diverse range of outdoor commercial activities. Potential risks must be identified and mitigated through a workplace risk assessment as outlined by the HSE.

“Thank you so much for the invite to last Wednesdays course. As I explained to the facilitator and as per my feedback comments, I thought the session was extremely informative, absolutely essential and most of all, fun! The chap who ran the day was superb, explained everything really well and I have left feeling so much more knowledgeable and confident to deal with serious situations. I now feel well equipped to talk to people about heart attacks as I know have a better understanding and more confidence.”

Many thanks for an enjoyable and informative Emergency First Aid at Work course yesterday; David did a great job in delivering the course, which Tidal organised really well. It certainly refreshed a lot of what I had forgotten over the past 20 years (!) and I feel more knowledgeable and confident that I’ll now be able to do my best in an emergency situation. I’m sure the rest of the Porge team will find the course useful over the next few months.
