First aid at work


If your risk assessment highlights that you need a qualified first aider on-site, then ATR’s Level 3 First Aid at Work qualification will provide you with that suitable, highly-trained person or persons. Alternatively, assessments may have identified that your organisation needs an employee with an emergency first aid at work qualification.

Employers need to take various levels of due diligence into how they select a first aid training provider. You may also require additional first aid courses to complete.

ATR are specialist training providers in both First Aid at Work (FAW) and Emergency first aid at Work (EFAW) as well as other specific courses like paediatric first aid, trauma first aid and the recognised FREC and FPOS-I  training courses. All of our training involves recreating specific scenarios which will be tailored to your environment, where you'll be trained on how to act proactively, safely and efficiently.

It is a Health and Safety Law requirement that employers and organisations provide a safe and healthy work environment. At the very least, employers should at least have a first aid box, and an appointed person to take charge of any situations where first aid might be required. In more high-risk and dangerous work environments, where there are more significant health and safety risks, a trained first aider will need to be present.

Our First Aid at Work course runs for three days, involving 18 hours of specialist dedicated, scenario-based training. This first aid training course covers treatment for a plethora of injuries and medical conditions.A Level 3 RQF certification will give participants a qualification to the highest level of first aid, meeting the statutory requirements of the Health and Safety Regulations 1981.

Participants will develop the first aid skills and confidence to help someone who is:

  • Unresponsive (both breathing and not breathing)
  • Choking
  • Bleeding
  • Dealing with a head injury
  • Suffering from shock
  • Poisoned or burned
  • In pain from bone, muscle or joint injuries
  • Suffering from a seizure, heart attack, stroke, allergic reaction or asthma attack

At the end of our courses, you will be presented with a confirmation scenario where you can put your knowledge into practice.



Our workplace first aid course is delivered in both a classroom setting, as well as using scenario-based settings, using high-quality first aid equipment. This course offers a practical, hands-on approach that ensures participants leave with the confidence in applying first aid skills in real-life situations. The course is assessed by written questions and an observed practical assessment from an authorised assessor, who is not part of the delivery of the course.

While the HSE First Aid at Work syllabus is industry standard, ATR can tailor specific content and information to your organisation, to help you receive the best possible training.

On successful completion of this first aid course, participants will receive a First Aid at Work certificate, which is valid for three years.

After three years of holding First Aid at Work certification, organisations can obtain First Aid at Work requalification by attending a shortened 2-day course, if completed within 28 days of the original certificate’s expiration.

Additionally, while not a requirement, ATR highly recommend all first aiders take an annual 4-hour First Aid at Work refresher, to ensure you are still retaining the right knowledge and skills.

Any first aid training can be delivered in our Centre of Excellence near Reading, or at your venue. The practical nature of our scenario-based courses means that they’re provided with access to an anticipated working environment for delegates.
