First Aid (Annual Refresher)

First aid (annual refresher) will refresh those first aid skills, knowledge, and understanding, to enable them to continue carrying out their first aider role in the workplace.

If it has been more than 12 months since they attended your first aid course, then there is a very good chance they may have forgotten some of what they have learned. We call these skills fade and we all get it from time to time.

HSE (first aid) strongly recommends that all first aiders in the workplace undertake refresher training every 12 months to help prevent skills fade. Although at this time this is only a recommendation, not a legal requirement.

First aid (annual refresher) does come with a requirement syllabus which is set out below. We include other first-aid skills that our learners want to revisit too such as using a tourniquet, catastrophic wound management, etc.
