We will be facilitating a 1-day First aid at work course on Friday 29th April at the Innovation Centre Medway.
For organisations looking to train their staff in first aid, we will be running an in-person classroom training course at the end of April.
The course is an in-depth training programme for those who want to gain the knowledge and skills to perform first aid procedures in the workplace.
What does the course involve and who is it suitable for?
Course Content: This course covers the roles and responsibilities of an emergency first aider. This course meets the requirements of the First Aid Regulations 1981 (as amended 2018).
Who should attend: This qualification is for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to provide basic first aid to people in a range of emergency first aid situations. This one-day course is suited to those that wish to become nominated first aiders in their workplaces, particularly lower risk environments, such as smaller offices.
Learning objectives: At the end of the course delegates will be able to:
- Manage an unresponsive casualty
- Perform CPR and use an AED
- Place someone in the Recovery Position
- Provide First Aid treatment in relation to Choking, Seizures, Shock, Wounds, External bleeding, Cuts, Grazes, Bruises, Minor Burns and Scalds.
Why first aid?
First aid in the workplace is an extremely important safety measure which should be respected by workplaces for a number of reasons. Safe working environments are the right of every employee, and furthermore are the responsibility of all employers.
First aid training gives your employees the ability to reduce risks in the workplace. With this qualification, employees will be able to demonstrate the ability to undertake the responsibilities of an emergency first aider under the First Aid Regulations 1981.
Did you know the first four minutes after an emergency are the most important? These mere moments allow a trained first aider to perform life saving activities and reduce the risk of the patient receiving impairments later in life. Thousands of people are injured at work each year, and your business can reduce the risk to your employees with the application of this relevant training course.
