Step Change in Safety is pleased to offer an accredited (FAA) remote learning Level 1 Awareness of First Aid for Mental Health for Energy Workers. Our exclusive training course is conducted by, and in association with Brett Townsley, the award-winning Innovations Director at Omniscient Safety.

Being able to spot the signs and symptoms associated with deteriorating mental health, and having the knowledge and confidence to provide the opportunity for those affected to talk openly about their feelings, is crucial in supporting positive mental health and, consequently, safety.

This bespoke course has been specifically adapted to retain the complete syllabus of mental health first aid training but with the added advantage of being industry-specific for the energy worker, and includes discussion, case studies and energy-industry specific data.

Each training course consists of two, one-hour Zoom sessions (ie. both dates) supporting materials, handbook and a one-to-one knowledge-check session.
