EMERGENCY FIRST AID
Emergency First Aid at Work
A 1 day course over 6 guided learning hours a maximum of 12 learners
Where an organisation’s risk assessment of First Aid needs identifies that there is a requirement for Emergency First Aid at Work practitioners, then this national Award in Emergency First Aid at Work satisfies the requirements of the regulatory body for First Aid – the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
All learners will have the skills and knowledge to provide the organisation with Emergency First Aider’s that can provide treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner.
A range of subjects are covered including:
Responsibilities and reporting, Assessment of the situation, Dealing with an unresponsive casualty, Basic hygiene in First Aid, Burns, Epilepsy, Resuscitation, Anatomy, Minor injuries, Bleeding control, Choking, Shock.
A maximum of 12 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment. A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role. The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.
Summative practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor each day, along with a written assessment on each day. A three year Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (Level 5 in Scotland) will be issued to the learner, subject to successful assessment. No external assessors are required.
