What will I learn?
This course is ideal for larger workplaces that present more health and safety risks, and require a fully qualified First Aider.
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.
The QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF) qualification is specifically designed for individuals who wish to act as a first aider in their workplace. Successful candidates will learn how to manage a range of injuries and illnesses that could occur at work and will be equipped with the essential
skills needed to give emergency first aid.
The course covers the following:
The role and responsibilities of a first aider
Assessing an incident
Managing an unresponsive casualty
CPR and defibrillation
Head and spinal injuries
Wounds and bleeding
Sprains, strains and dislocations
Burns and scalds
Please note that delegates will need to bring a copy of First Aid Made Easy – Nigel Barraclough (ISBN 0955229405) to the course. This is available online or from all good booksellers.
Learners must be at least 14 years old on the first day of the training.
