First Aid for Construction

We run first aid training for the building industry and construction. Our First Aid at Work course can be enhanced with workplace specific scenarios for your workers and supervisors. All our courses are interactive and practical and we use only annually assessed trainers with knowledge of yours sector.

Outdoor First Aid limited can also help develop your HSE First Aid Risk Assessment free of charge and build this into your first aid training programme. Our courses and training meet the new HSE Due Diligence requirements for employers.
