This HSE approved qualification came into effect on 1st October 2009, along with new guidance on assessing the needs of First Aid in your workplace. Your risk assessment of First Aid needs may well identify the need for Emergency First Aiders either as an addition to your First Aiders, or where the risk of your business is low; it may well identify them as being sufficient without the need of additional First Aiders.
It is critical that you familiarise yourself with the new assessment table of First Aid needs before making your decision. Please contact us if you wish us to help you do the assessment or if you need any guidance.
A minimum of 6 hours consisting of theoretical and practical activities.
A wide range of subjects is covered including:-
If your organisation has a specific area of training that is not included, or you require a more in-depth session, then we can accommodate you by providing additional training in that particular subject.
Assessment is ongoing by the instructor, and a 3-year qualification will be issued to those who meet the criteria. In addition, the HSE strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of about 3 hours, although it is not mandatory.
A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated on this course and each participant must be ages a minimum of 14 years or above. Bigger groups can be catered for, but the ratio must not exceed 12 students per instructor
We are able to deliver this course on your site, subject to a pre-course assessment of your premises, reducing your costs in respect of additional time out travelling or at one of our local venues near you.
