The manufacturing and engineering sector involves a huge range of activities, from the production of pharmaceuticals in sterile environments through to bespoke heavy engineering projects. Consequently, the types and levels of risks to workers in these environments also varies considerably from minimal/low risk activities through to those which would be classified as potentially high risk. Safety levels are generally excellent, but there still remains the possibility that workers can be exposed to potentially very serious, and occasionally, life threatening injuries or illness.
Clearly not all workplaces are equal. The types of injury and illness that first aiders are most likely to face will vary according to their working environment. Their training must reflect these differences to ensure that they are as well prepared and effective as possible.
NPTA takes all of these factors into account to increase learner engagement and deliver truly effective training.
