Who should attend the First Aid at Work course?
Nominated First Aiders under Health and Safety requirements or anyone wanting a comprehensive introduction to First Aid.
This course is suitable for people aged 16+ who work in high hazard environments such as construction, manufacturing or agriculture.
It is also ideal for organisations whose needs assessment identifies a requirement for additional first aid training (e.g. due to having employees with a disability or medical condition).
It gives learners the skills and confidence to respond to a range of accidents and first aid emergencies they could encounter in the workplace.
First Aid at Work covers the arrangements employers must make to ensure employees who become ill or injure themselves at work receive immediate attention, including calling an ambulance in serious cases.
It doesn’t matter whether the illness or injury is caused by work, what is important is that lives can be saved and minor injuries prevented from becoming serious by the quick intervention of a trained first aider.
