First Aid Training in the workplace 

"First Aid training with us is a cost effective insurance policy!" 
 
As you will no doubt be aware companies who employ more than five members of staff are mandated to comply with the Health & Safety at work Act 1974 and/or the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

It seeks to close the current legal loophole which means that organisations can only be convicted of manslaughter if a single individual at the very top of the company is also personally liable – a point that has tended to ‘protect’ large organisations, since the decision making process is usually delegated down to a senior management team. 
 
In this increasingly litigious world and notwithstanding the tragic loss in human terms, can you really afford not to have appropriately trained personnel on duty? How much could a successful law suit cost your organisation?
