Emergency First Aid at Work

Overview: - This course is designed for people who want to receive training in emergency first aid. It is especially suited for nominated first aiders in smaller, low risk working environments, such as small offices. The course covers first aid protocols for adult casualties only.

A blend of learning to help to remember what to do along with plenty of opportunities to practice.

Duration: - 0930 to 1630 at Ivybridge.

Who for: - Anyone who is or maybe in a position of responsibility for delivering first aid at an incident.

Where an organisation’s 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.

You will gain the knowledge and practical competence required to deal with a range of workplace first aid situations.

A person cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the person is suitable for that role.

The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.
