Course Overview

What are the aims of the course?

The Health & Safety (First Aid) 1981 regulations require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This course will equip delegates with the knowledge and practical experience to enable them to carry out First Aid within the workplace.

This workshop covers:

  • Incident and casualty management
  • Causes of unconsciousness
  • C.P.R.
  • Airway and breathing problems
  • Wounds and bleeding
  • Shock
  • Burns and scalds
  • Bone, joint and muscle injuries
  • Poisoning
  • Eye injuries

What will I achieve?

By the end of the course the delegate will have covered how to act safely, promptly and effectively during emergencies at work to a recognised national standard. The delegates are assessed via a practical exam. If successful they will receive a First Aid At Work certificate, which is valid for 3 years.

This qualification can be taken as a free-standing award or as part of a wider programme of training.
