COronavirus and FIRST AID
Coronavirus Covid-19 has undoubtedly made a huge impact on the world in 2020 and now more than ever, we need to be taking care of ourselves and our neighbors in a safe and controlled way.
The Health and Safety Executive and The Resuscitation Council UK have both issued statements regarding this.
HSE - First aid qualifications in the workplace: "If you hold a first aid certificate that expires on or after 16 March 2020 and cannot access requalification training because of coronavirus you may qualify for a 3-month extension.
This applies to: First Aid at Work (FAW) and Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW).
To qualify for the extension, you must be able to explain why you haven’t been able to requalify and demonstrate what steps you have taken to access the training if asked to do so."
Please note: This extension does NOT apply to Basic Life Support.

About Blaise First Aid Training
Think of first aid training like car insurance. You need to have it, just in case... but hopefully, you'll never need to!
At Blaise First aid, I believe that first aid training should be readily available and affordable to everyone.
Blaise First Aid Training was started by myself, Keri Eynon, an experienced and qualified trainer and assessor back in 2015. All courses are delivered, evaluated and quality assured to meet the HSE requirements of the FAW (First Aid) regulations 1981/2016.
Blaise First Aid Training is a mobile service where I come to you, anywhere in South Wales and the surrounding areas, to deliver your first aid training, at a time convenient to you.
