What will I learn?

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate first aid training. However, having the correct first aid provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff.

This course covers

* The roles and responsibilities of an emergency first aider
* Assessing an incident
* Managing an unresponsive casualty
* CPR and defibrillation
* Recovery Position
* Choking
* Seizures
* Shock
* Wounds and bleeding
* Minor injuries:

Delegates who pass the exam will receive a Qualsafe Emergency First Aid at Work certificate

Please note that learners will need to bring a copy of Emergency First Aid Made Easy (ISBN 0955229413) to the course. This is available from online or from all good bookshops.

Where will it lead me?

An Emergency First Aid at Work Certificate, valid for three years will be posted to delegates at the end of the course
