First Aid in the Workplace
Show Notes

First Aid should be available to all in the workplace, whether it's just a person nominated by the employer to take charge and phone an ambulance or maybe you work in a high risk job with chemicals, cuts or serious accidents frequently occurring? 

This podcast explains how you decide on what is most suitable for your business, the different levels of training and competence available and also what else you might need to consider.

As promised, below are the show note resources as mentioned, and a few extra besides.

Don't forget to subscribe to my podcast for future episodes. Or why not drop me a line with a request for a subject.
Or why not purchase by book: Managers Pocket Guide to First Aid at Work available on the Amazon. See what it is all about by watching the video
