This course is suitable for people aged 16+ who might need to provide first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill while at work.
It is ideal for organisations whose first aid needs assessment has identified a requirement for someone to hold a current emergency first aid at work qualification. If your needs assessment identifies a requirement for additional first aid training (e.g. due to having employees with a medical condition), we recommend the three day first aid at work course which teaches the skills to recognise and treat a wider range of injuries and medical conditions.
It gives learners the skills and confidence to respond to a range of accidents and first aid emergencies they could encounter in the workplace.
Learners will develop the skills and confidence to help someone who is:
- Unresponsive and not breathing, including how to use of an automated external defibrillator (AED)
- Unresponsive and breathing
- Having a seizure
- Bleeding heavily
- Suffering from shock
The course also includes information on:
- Assessing a casualty
- Monitoring a casualty
- Where to get help
- Electrical incidents
- Accident recording and reporting
- The control of substances hazardous to health (COSHH).
This course offers a practical, hands-on approach that delivers the skills and confidence to use first aid skills in a real life situation in which our courses meet and exceed the HSE’s criteria for what is expected of training providers.
On successful completion of this course, you will receive an emergency first aid at work certificate which is valid for three years.
This course meets the requirements specified by the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
