Emergency First Aid At Work Course

Emergency First Aid at Work Training Course

The DHF has added an Emergency First Aid at Work Training Course. The first course has been run successfully covering actions in an emergency, resuscitation & CPR.

The use of AED’s (automated external defibrillator), wounds and seizures was also included at the Door & Hardware Federation's training academy.

Costing £100 plus VAT for DHF members and £135 plus VAT for non-members, learners will gain essential knowledge to save lives by offering immediate assistance in the event of an incident.  The price of the course includes a first aid book, first aid accessories, lunch and refreshments.  The course is a Level 3 qualification and complies with the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 and HSE guidance.


 “We are delighted to be adding to our training portfolio with our Emergency First Aid at Work course.”

– Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens 

Head of commercial operations, DHF


Team building

“An accident can occur at any time.  Completing a first aid at work course increases confidence and safety, can reduce recovery time and is great for company moral and team building, adds the DHF's Sowsbery-Stevens. "It can also help keep employees safe outside of work, as staff members will have these skills for life.  In short, first aid training saves lives.”



Since April, the federation has trained nearly 300 people in its Automated Gate & Traffic Barrier, and Industrial & Garage Door training courses, 22% of these have been delivered online.  In addition, the organisation will very shortly be launching its new training website to help learners, for example, book refresher courses.
