    I was trained at college to be a 'first aider'. Since then my company has payed for me to refresh the course everytime i need to.

    All our foreman are first aiders, I'm the only first aid operator. I carry a first aid box in the machine which is useful for when your far from the welfare/site offices.

    Do people get payed more for being in this position of responsibility? We don't here, most of us have said were won't refresh unless we do.
