Emergency First Aid at Work
Where a workplace First Aid risk assessment identifies a need for an Emergency First Aider in the Workplace, this one-day qualification meets the requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1982.
All learners will gain the skills and knowledge to provide their organisation with Emergency First Aid that can provide treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner.
A range of subjects are covered including:-
• Responsibilities and reporting • Resuscitation and AED awareness • Burns
• Assessment of the situation • Anatomy • Choking
• Dealing with an unresponsive casualty • Minor injuries • Epilepsy
• Basic hygiene in First Aid • Bleeding control • Shock
Practical assessment is carried out by the instructor, and a three year qualification will be issued to those who satisfy the criteria.
In addition, the HSE strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of three hours.
