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. For those who just need to brush up on their skills, we can also provide first aid at work course refreshers. 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).
The one day course runs from 9 am until 5 pm each day, with a lunch break between the morning and afternoon sessions. We recommend that you bring your own lunch, as not all venues have food outlets on-site or nearby.
Delivered in a classroom setting, this course offers a practical, hands-on approach that delivers the skills and confidence to use first aid skills in a real-life situation. For added reassurance, each learner is assessed throughout the course using a range of practical demonstrations, question and answer sessions, quizzes and engaging activities designed to coach and support them.
This will encourage a positive learning environment within the group and it will help everyone to reach the common goal of learning as much as they possibly can from the course.
To ensure you get the most effective learning experience, learners must be physically able to participate and we limit group size to 12 people.
Each learner receives a training pack including a host of resources to help them practice the skills covered. The pack includes a course companion workbook, bandages and more.
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.
