About First Aid & AED Training

We offer four variations of First Aid & AED training courses that cover various topics including CPR, bleeding and wound care, choking hazards, and more. During the 1-day First Aid course, staff working in any sector will gain knowledge of the signs and symptoms of common medical emergencies, how to best assess the situation, prioritise treatment for a wide range of conditions, and provide care until emergency services arrive. Unlike other courses, First Aid training at Jason Rowley LTD  will provide the knowledge required to ensure a safe working environment in the gas, electrical and telecommunications industries when faced with risks. 

An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable device that delivers an electric shock to the heart to help restore a normal rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest. Our AED training courses equip you with the skills to safely navigate using an automated external defibrillator, integrating other essential elements of emergency support. At Jason Rowley LTD, our experienced trainers use face-to-face teaching methods to create an engaging and practical environment for the realistic application of the skills you will learn. Joining our First Aid & AED courses will aid individuals and businesses to be well-prepared to respond effectively to emergency situations in the gas, electric and telecommunications industries.

Frequently Asked Questions

We often get asked a lot of questions regarding the different training courses and training we offer. If you can’t find your question answered below, feel free to get in touch with the team.

The Health & Safety Executive strongly encourage that workers trained in First Aid undertake annual refresher training during their 3-year certification period so that they continue to maintain their skills and be knowledgeable of changes to first-aid procedures.

The Health and Safety Regulations 1981 outlines the employers’ legal duties which require employees to “provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel” depending on the circumstances of the workplace so that employees can receive appropriate medical attention if injured or taken ill. Within the gas, electric and telecommunication industries, first aid provision may be more detailed and include a surplus of medical equipment due to the greater risks involved in the workplace.

In the event of an emergency at work, it is essential you contact an emergency medical service as soon as it is safe to do so and request immediate assistance. While waiting for a medical professional to arrive, utilise your First Aid training to deduce any signs of injury, e.g., cuts and use the appropriate equipment from a First Aid kit to temporarily treat the wound.

However, it is also important to take preventative measures before an emergency can even occur, including undertaking an accurate risk assessment of the work area. It is a legal requirement in the UK to conduct a written assessment of occupational health and safety risks in the workspace for businesses with 5 or more employees. An accurate risk assessment will identify all potential hazards that could lead to an emergency situation.

The contents of your first aid kit should be based on the results of your risk assessment of the workplace. If you are working in the gas, electric and telecommunications industries, this may mean that the first aid kit has a surplus of essential medical equipment due to the increased likelihood of hazards. As a bare minimum, a first aid kit should contain:

  • A first aid leaflet with general guidance on emergency medical procedures
  • Sterile plasters in various sizes
  • Sterile eye pads
  • Triangular bandages, preferably sterile
  • Safety pins
  • Sterile, Unmedicated wound dressings in large and medium sizes
  • Disposable gloves
