The Emergency First Aid at Work course meets the requirements of the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) and is nationally recognised, designed for those who have a specific responsibility at work to provide first aid in a range of emergency first aid situations.

Measuring Up – showing the impact of your work

Tuesday 4th October 2022 (online)

10.00 am –  1.30 pm ( 3.5 hours including a break midway)

Cost: £45 – £75

It’s no longer good enough just to do good work. We now need to be able to prove it and show it.  

This practical session will look at how we can move away from playing a ‘numbers game’ and focus more on the outcomes and the difference our work makes.  The session will look at tested ways of measuring the impact of what we do, how we can encourage people to take a longer term view and provide useful evidence for funders and commissioners.

Fire Marshal course

Tuesday 18th October 2022 (in person at the OCVA Training Room)

9.30 am – 1.30 pm (4 hours)

Did you know that breaches of fire safety laws can result in unlimited fines and even imprisonment?

The Fire Marshal course is specifically designed for anyone who has a specific responsibility for fire safety in the workplace, such as designated fire wardens/fire marshals. Delegates will learn about causes and effects of fires, as well as how to prevent their spread and implement necessary emergency procedures. The course complies with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
