I can’t afford to lose staff for one to three days!
It is a legal requirement that all businesses/organisations, schools, early years & health care providers have a trained and qualified first aider on site at all times & that everyone under takes industry relevant training regularly.
If it is found, following an investigation, that there was a breach of H&S laws including inadequate staff training you could be prosecuted. The fines are huge and it could result in imprisonment.
Although inconvenient, hours lost to staff training, is a far cheaper option in the long term.
Quality staff training will benefit your business by safer practices being implemented.
