First Aid

Are you looking to undertake a first aid course? If so, Wayside Transport can help as we offer a variety of first aid courses all of which are HSE approved. You can read more about each of these course options below. Alternatively, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact our team today on 01202 873 911.

Emergency First Aid at Work

The Emergency First Aid at Work course is a one-day programme that has been designed to cover all regulatory requirements. It is an essential qualification for anyone looking to become the designated first aider in their place of employment. This course is the best choice for many candidates, so long as their risk assessment stipulates that only first-aid training that covers emergency protocols is required.

Who is this course aimed at?

This particular first aid course is aimed at individuals looking to train as first aiders in environments that could be considered low-risk. These are usually smaller places of employment that don’t have a particularly large workforce or aren’t engaged in operations which would be considered dangerous.

First Aid at Work (Re-Qualification)

Once you’ve passed the First Aid at Work course, it’s worth noting that you must renew your certification once every three years. This is to ensure that your knowledge remains fresh and that you are aware of all current changes in legislation and all up-to-date techniques. The HSE urges all first aiders to re-qualify within a month of their certificate expiring.

Who is this course aimed at?

The First Aid at Work (Re-Qualification) course is intended solely for individuals looking to renew their current first aid certification.

What can attendees expect to be taught?



The purpose of this course is to refresh the knowledge and skills of those who attend.

It’s designed to supplement pre-existing knowledge and is, therefore, not suitable for beginners.

Time for revision is allowed as are practice sessions.

A written assessment will be carried out, and this must be passed in order for the attendee to be re-certified.

This refresher course will take place over the course of two days and will cover the contents of the First Aid at Work course.

Defibrillator & CPR First Aid Training

You never know when disaster will strike as an individual could go into cardiac arrest at any time and anywhere. Once this happens, every second counts, as for each minute that passes the patient’s chances of survival drop rapidly. By having a defibrillator close by, the patient’s odds of survival will increase significantly. While manual CPR can help, a defibrillator dramatically increases the chances of resuscitating the patient.

Of course, it’s important that you and your employees know, first, where it’s located and, second, how to use it. The purpose of the Defibrillator & CPR First Aid Training course is to teach attendees how to operate a defibrillator and how to successfully perform CPR.

No Experience Required

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are a worthwhile investment as they have been shown to save lives. For the health and well-being of all employees and clients, it’s recommended that a business considers equipping themselves with one or more of these devices. It’s also suggested that all employees are trained in their usage.

No previous experience or special training is required to attend this course. We’ll teach you everything you need to know and leave you with the confidence of knowing exactly what to do in a life or death situation. Whether as supplementary training for another first aid certification or as a stand-alone qualification, this course is designed to suit everyone.
