First Aid at Work
One of the key aspects Ascent First Aid prides itself on is its quality of training and specialising their courses for the group infront of them. If you are looking for a First Aid at Work course but geared towards your industry get in contact with Ascent First Aid.
The First Aid at Work course is suitable for a workplace with a larger workforce of around 50 + or a hazardous workplace. Great if you are looking at a more advanced course than that of the EFAW with a focus on injury as well as illness or you would like to just take your first aid skills to the next level. The first day of the course is the Emergency FAW. This is great if you need some members trained up at the Emergency First Aid at Work level and some who need to have that extra training to make your place of work safer.
