We all know that accidents happen. But they are much more common at work than you might think. According to the Health and Safety Executive, during 2019 – 2020 nearly 700,000 injuries were reported at work across the UK.
Making sure that your workplace is safe is obviously critical to reducing the risk and impact of hazards on your staff. Our accredited Health and Safety courses can help you with this. But even with the best working practices, injuries can be sustained by both staff and customers – often without warning.
Our First Aid awareness course has been designed to provide the basics of first aid treatment to staff working in a hospitality setting. You will learn how to effectively treat some of the most commonly sustained injuries and give you the skills to know how to react in an emergency situation.

What will I learn from the First Aid Awareness course?
Our First Aid awareness course is perfect for anyone working in the hospitality sector. If it is possible that you could witness an accident, either involving a fellow staff member or a client, this course can help. The course can be used as a new introduction to first aid, or as a refresher for those who have taken a course previously.
The modules covered in the First Aid Awareness course include:
First Aid at Work We introduce the principle of first aid, explain why it matters and introduce the basic processes you should know. We also cover accident reporting and knowing your role in an emergency.
Emergency First Aid This module covers the action you should take if someone has sustained an injury or fallen ill. We also discuss the processes you should complete afterwards to document the incident.
Injuries and Incidents In this section we explore some of the common injuries and illnesses that can occur at the workplace and how you should respond. Injuries and illnesses covered include choking, burns, experiencing a stoke and diabetes.
Wounds and Bleeding Finally, we tackle wounds and bleeding that can occur after an incident. You will learn how to identify different types of injuries and provide effective first aid in these situations.
Will I receive a certificate for completing the First Aid Awareness course?
Yes, you will receive a certificate once you have finished the course. To complete the course successfully, you must pass a final test that confirms you have learned the key information and skills within each module. There is also a short test at the end of each module so you can verify your progress as you go.
To pass, you must achieve a score of 21 out of 30 or more on the final test. You will then be able to download and print out your certificate of completion.
This course – like the rest of our extensive training portfolio – is endorsed by the Institute of Hospitality, which is widely recognised within the hospitality sector.
