Trauma Resus First Aid – not just another first-aid training provider.
We deliver training, advice and support that really makes a difference.
Trauma & Resuscitation Services Ltd have recently joined forces with Qualsafe, an accreditation body supported by OfQual, to allow us to deliver the full range of HSE First Aid courses to people and organisations across the UK. Our aim is to bring a fresh approach to First Aid at Work training by offering a full service of training and support with the ability to tailor courses to suit you and your environment. With our extensive faculty of trainers and medical directors, backed up by our ethos of Quality, Integrity, Innovation and Value, you can be sure you’ll get exactly the training you need for your workplace, home or leisure activity.
With the imminent de-regulation of First Aid training by the HSE, it is imperative that an organisation has faith in its first aid training provider. With our faculty of doctors, paramedics and other front line practitioners who are all at the forefront of their respective fields, you can rest assured that we will give you the best training there is, by people who really know their subject! In the end, this has a real bearing on the patient care that your first aiders give.
We can also give advice on first aid equipment and any further skills we feel may be relevant to your circumstances.
We offer free, no obligation advice on any aspect of your first aid requirements, be it training, equipment or clinical governance.
Trauma Resus can help you with all aspects of the health & safety first aid management within your organisation, with our focus being on our area of proven expertise, that of training staff in first aid so they know what to do in the event of an emergency. We focus on basic skills being done well, which is what saves lives.
Remember, our ethos is Quality, Innovation, Integrity and Value.

What the Health and Safety Act means for the employer.As an employer, you have a legal obligation to provide a safe and healthy environment for your staff and members of the public. These obligations are governed by the government agency – The Health and Safety Executive (HSE). The current guidelines state:
- You must appoint somebody competent to be responsible for your organisation’s health & safety.
- This person's duties will include management of:
- The Health & Safety policy for your business
- Risk Assessment relating to hazards in and around your site / premises
- Training of all members of staff in what to do in the event of an emergency
- Equipment available for staff to use to deal with an emergency
- Typically, this person will be a trained first aider with a valid First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work certificate.
- You must have first aid arrangements within your workplace
- You are responsible for making sure that your employees receive immediate attention if they are taken ill or are injured at work
- You must report and keep a record of certain injuries, incidents and cases of work-related disease. This is because of legislation called RIDDOR - Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995. Contact us for more information on this, or see the HSE RIDDOR website.
- As a minimum, you must have:
- A suitably stocked first-aid box;
- An appointed person to take charge of first-aid arrangements (typically a trained first aider, as mentioned above)
