AEDs (defibrillators) Now taught on ALL First Aid Courses

Date: 13 Jan 2017

The HSE have introduced a requirement to teach the use of AEDs (Defibrillators) for ALL First Aid at Work courses as from 1st January 2017. AEDs, although not mandatory in the workplace, can be lifesavers if used within the first minutes of a Heart Attack. Many larger workplaces along with public places are now employing an AED so it is beneficial that First Aiders have confidence to use one. Therefore ALL our First Aid courses now include tuition and skills practice on AEDS.
