Emergency First Aid at Work : 1 day course
Where an organisation’s risk assessment of First Aid needs identifies that there is a requirement for Emergency First Aid at Work practitioners, then this national Award in Emergency First Aid at Work satisfies the requirements of the regulatory body for First Aid – the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
This course runs over a minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities.
All learners will have the skills and knowledge to provide the organisation with Emergency First Aider’s that can provide treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner.
A range of subjects are covered including:
- Responsibilities and reporting
- Assessment of the situation
- Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
- Basic hygiene in First Aid
- Resuscitation and AED awareness
- Minor injuries
- Bleeding control
Summative practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor each day, along with a written assessment on each day. A three-year Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (Level 5 in Scotland) will be issued to the learner, subject to successful assessment.
