Hse Due Diligence Checklist

Choose the right First Aid training for your workplace

First aid training is about so much more than just ticking the necessary boxes in accordance with governmental regulations. Instead, it’s about bringing total peace of mind to any workplace and knowing that should the worst happen, those present at the time will have the skills, knowledge and confidence required to step in and take control. First aid has the potential to save lives and does so every day across countless UK businesses, but will at the same time only ever be as effective as the teaching methods of the training provider chosen. Guardian Angels Training is committed to going the extra mile and promises to deliver superior quality first aid training above and beyond governmental guidelines. With the help of the following due diligence checklist, you’ll be able to see exactly how it is that our training programs are uniquely capable and guarantee outstanding results every time.
