About Me

Welcome to Safety First, please take a look round and if you have any questions or can't see a course you need please do get in touch.

Safety First is a First Aid Company based in Bexley, South East London covering London, Kent and Essex. It is run and directed by a nurse with over 20 years of clinical experience.

With the knowledge of how important it is to act quickly when faced with an emergency, all the trainers who work with us come highly recommended with great feedback from our clients.

  • My name is Keri Hartwright and I am a qualified paediatric nurse with many years of hospital and community experience. I am also a mum to a beautiful 6 year old girl who has tested my first aid knowledge and skills on a number of occasions.

    I have a passion for teaching and sharing information which has evolved over a long career in the NHS.  I have been running first aid training courses for over 5 years in and around London and the South East.

    I am the training partner for More2Childcare  a childcare provider based in Greenwich South East London.  I also deliver regular courses for a company called The HR Dept to help them ensure their clients are up to date with their health and safety requirements.

  • Why is first aid important?

    I believe that first aid should be good quality, affordable and accessible to everyone.  I have seen first hand the difference knowledge can make to someone’s life on a number of occasions, particularly the day I stopped my friend’s son from choking.  I have also received feedback to say that my training has been put into practice in a variety of settings so the skills definitely apply to real life.

    I believe my paediatric nursing experience, both current and past gives my sessions a bit of an edge as I can offer real life examples.  I am currently rolling out a resource for teaching children how to do first aid something I think is absolutely essential.

    I know that as a mum I would do anything to protect my daughter and I think first aid is extremely important. With the latest law changes in regard to Millie’s Law, first aid is now a legal requirement for all Early Years Practitioners who work with children.  I deliver training to a number of nurseries in and around South East London.

  • What Can I Offer?

    What Can I Offer?

    I can offer accredited first aid training courses and safeguarding to Level 2 through Qualsafe one of the leading awarding organisations who put quality at the centre of all they do.  The courses are regulated by Ofqual.  My training is inline with current recommendations through the Resuscitation Council (UK)

    I do also offer non accredited courses.  All my training has been quality assured both internally and externally to ensure my delivery is up to standard.

    I keep my knowledge and skills up to date through regular CPD and by working in different hospitals.  I am a member of Anaphylaxis UK who provide a wealth of information and resources for the public
