First Aid and Health and Safety Training in the North East

We're actually more interested in you and what your training requirements are so we can better support you and protect your business. If you'd like to find out a bit more about us though, please read on.

Our Story

Life Saving Training was born out of a vision to stand out and make a difference. To give people real life skills and confidence. To save more lives in our workplaces, homes and communities. To eradicate the stuffy, dull and downright outdated training that often exists in Health and Safety.

Are you familiar with a feeling of completing a course but not really having a clue what to do if a real emergency were to occur? Have you gone through the motions, performed stand alone skills, got a tick in the box, listened to a trainer tell stories and got an early finish?

Or do you manage employees who can’t get excited about the idea of First Aid training?

That’s all commonplace unfortunately. Research also shows that more than half of people who have ever completed a First Aid course in the past, don’t have the confidence to help. Sadly, people die needlessly and it’s a travesty.

This big problem is precisely why we set up Life Saving Training - to create resourceful and confident First Aiders, who can think on their feet and have the confidence and skills to help in real life emergencies. In turn, business owners can sleep at night knowing they’re compliant, way above and beyond simply having the right bits of paper in place.

Resources

All our courses are well thought out, with the perfect balance of theoretical and practical work. Our training is always up to date with the latest medical research and guidelines, so you’re not being told the wrong information. It drives us mad when we see other organisations adhering to guidelines that are at least two years out of date! 

We’re really proud of our resources too and our customers tell us they love the toys they get to play with! There’ll always be at least one manikin between two, training defibrillators to get hands on experience in live scenarios, anti-choking vests and much much more.

Recently we upgraded all our manikins with ‘QCPR’ technology, meaning our learners receive direct feedback on the quality of their CPR there and then, via an iPad.

Research shows that the use of such a feedback device significantly improves CPR performance. Your wellbeing or the wellbeing of your staff is also our priority, so we take great pride in maintaining hygienic equipment.

Who we work with

We train a variety of organisations — large and small, across a range of high to low hazard sectors and environments like offices, schools, hospitality, retail, in engineering, manufacturing and construction, in sport and the great outdoors. Just check out some of our testimonials to see who we’ve worked with and what they think.

Where we work

We’re based in Newcastle upon Tyne in the North East and travel throughout the UK to deliver in-house training and qualifications in First Aid and Health & Safety. We also use local training venues to suit different courses and you can book our most popular first aid training courses online, as well as access our wide range of Health & Safety eLearning courses. Now that's convenience!
