Who is it for?
This course is suitable for people aged 16+, and is designed for organisations who:
- work in low hazard environments, and/or
- have a small number of staff, and/or
- have completed a risk assessment which indicates that a first aider is not necessary.
If you have staff members with an existing medical condition (and these are detailed in your risk assessment), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) / Health and Safety Executive Northern Ireland (HSENI) recommends that you consider completing the three day first aid at work course; it teaches the skills to recognise and treat a wider range of injuries and medical conditions, which are not covered in the first aid for appointed persons or emergency first aid at work courses.
Training to qualify as a first aider is available on the first aid at work or emergency first aid at work courses.
Duration: Half day
