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). A three year Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work will be issued to the learner, subject to successful assessment.
Syllabus A range of subjects are covered including:-
• Responsibilities and reporting • Resuscitation and AED awareness • Burns • Assessment of the situation • Anatomy • Choking • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty • Minor injuries • Epilepsy • Basic hygiene in First Aid • Bleeding control • Shock
Duration: A minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities, plus some pre-course activity could be required.
Certification: Practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor, and a three year qualification will be issued to those who satisfy the criteria. In addition, the HSE strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of three hours.
Price: The price varies depending on the number of learners and course. Please call us for a competitive rate or group booking offers.
