First aid at work

JFD's first aid at work qualification is an important means in ensuring the most effective care is given between the onset of an emergency and the arrival of professional medical personnel.

A fast and efficient response can save lives and prevent minor injuries becoming major ones. This course by JFD is designed to provide candidates with the basic skills and confidence to deal with real life emergencies. 

In response to recent changes to industry guidelines, our first aid course now always includes AED training:
'The revision will require all workplace first aiders to be trained in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) from the 31 December 2016, as the Resuscitation Council UK guidelines now state that the management of a casualty requiring CPR is to request an AED.'
