First aid training is a vital part of contingency planning in the workplace. The workplace itself is responsible for contingency planning. It is advisable to plan first aid training related to contingency planning on the basis of the first aid preparedness plan and to build the whole on the basis of a risk assessment.
The first aid course can be organized as the company's own customized training or the course participants can participate in the training that is open to everyone. Open courses can be found from the “EVENTS” tab as a listing.
The advantage of on-demand training is the possibility to flexibly integrate the training day into staff readiness training and development. It is easy to connect additional customer-specific wishes to training.
