In the UK, thousands of people die every year in incidents where first aid could have saved them, if only there was someone there who knew how to help. The sad fact is that many people don’t know even the basics of first aid. In the workplace though, this is countered by legislation requiring that trained first aiders are available. At Amalgamate, we provide high quality, certified First Aid training to help you ensure that your organisation is compliant, and that your staff are protected.

First Aid training can help you deal with a heart attack, a broken bone, or even small things like a minor cut. Whatever the situation, a First Aider needs to have the knowledge and skills to know how to help when an incident occurs. Our 3 day First Aid at Work training course teaches you everything you need to know to be a First Aider. The course is a mix of theory and ‘hands on’ skills, where you get the chance to practice bandaging, CPR, and assessing an accident site.

We all hope that we won’t need to use our First Aid skills, but if you are ever in an emergency situation, this course aims to help you feel confident that you’re taking the best possible action – who knows, you might just save a life!

The course covers a wide range of techniques, injuries and illnesses, including:

  • Heart Attacks
  • CPR for adults, children and babies
  • Using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
  • Choking
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Burns
  • Shock
  • Stroke
  • Epilepsy
  • Blood Loss
  • Shock
  • Broken bones
  • Sprains & Strains, and more…

Our skilled trainers will assess your learning throughout the course, ensuring that any problem areas are addressed, and that you go into the final assessments with all the knowledge and skills that you need in order to take on the role of Workplace First Aider.

We also offer a 1 day Emergency First Aid course, which takes you through the basics. If you’d like to enquire about our range of fully accredited First Aid and other training courses, or make a booking, please phone us on 0141 244 0181 or email
