Group

This one-day (six hour) Emergency First Aid at Work course qualifies the delegate to act as an emergency first aider within their workplace. You can either opt for an in-house certificate that meets all HSE requirements or sit an exam and complete the Ofqual approved Level 2 qualification valid for three years, meeting the legal requirements for your organisation.

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.

The QA Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF) qualification is designed for individuals who wish to act as an emergency first aider in their workplace. Upon successful completion of this qualification, candidates will be equipped with the essential skills needed to give safe, prompt and effective first aid in emergency situations.

The course includes continuous assessment of participant’s practical skills that will be necessary when dealing with threatening emergencies. It will cover:

  • First aid in the workplace
  • The roles and responsibilities of a first aider
  • Emergency Action
  • Breathing and Circulation
  • Casualty Assessment
  • Resuscitation
  • Airway Obstruction
  • Disorders of the Circulation
  • Wounds and Bleeding
