  • Continuing our quest to offer the most comprehensive and flexible health and safety training provision possible to our clients, we’re pleased to announce that APT now offer off-site first aid training in Manchester at Stretford’s Trafford Hall Hotel. This is ideal for employers and individuals who would rather keep their workplace for work and undertake training courses at a separate location.

    With the flexibility and reach to offer on-site first aid training for Manchester businesses in all industry sectors, APT Health & Safety have become bywords for training excellence over the course of the last 30 years. Working with both employers and individual sole traders in Manchester to fulfill their first aid training responsibilities, we can arrange a comprehensive assessment of your firm’s unique first aid requirements, allowing us to determine what first aid infrastructure should be in place to keep your workforce safe, productive and operating within appropriate UK laws.

    We often travel to firms in Greater Manchester and across Lancashire providing industry-leading, on-site first aid training. But we also now organise off-site first aid training courses in Manchester, where candidates can undertake training away from the hustle and bustle of work.

    Organisations: What First Aid Provision Do you Have In Place?

    We can advise on all aspects of first aid and the corresponding training, working with you and your employees to help create a safer, better prepared working environment for you and your employees.

    You may not be aware that The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 stipulates that UK employers need to provide adequate and appropriate facilities, equipment and personnel to ensure all employees are able to receive  first aid attention the moment they are injured or taken ill at work.

    Integral to this employee responsibility is the arrangement of adequate, high-quality first aid training for all appropriate staff. APT will make sure you are aware of who needs what training and to what level within your organisation, so you don’t have to speculate or assume what is required of you.


    What do we mean by “adequate and appropriate”?

    These terms, in practice, will signify many different things for different organisations as no two working environments are the same, so unique risks are presented in each instance.  Factors that should be taken into consideration  include aspects such as: how many trained first-aiders will be required on a particular work site and what type training each individual will need, what should be the contents of the (perhaps various) on-site first aid boxes and  whether a dedicated first aid room is warranted/necessary. We can help assess and draw definitive conclusions on all these points.

    Some more detailed variables to take into account when conducting a First Aid policy assessment:

    • The size of the organisation
    • Employees working on multi-occupied or shared or sites
    • The nature and distribution of the workforce (i.e. the needs of travelling, on-site and lone workers)
    • Number and nature of workplace hazards and risks
    • The business (and industry’s) history of accidents
    • Distance and access to emergency medical services from the work site/s
    • Annual leave and absences of first-aiders and appointed persons
