QA Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work
What’s It About?
This one-day emergency first aid at work course will provide you with the necessary knowledge and practical skills you need to administer first aid in the workplace.
Furthermore, it will enable you to act as your appointed person and to take charge of the first-aid arrangements. The course also includes looking after your first aid equipment and facilities and calling the emergency services when required.
What Will You Gain?
By attending this emergency first aid course, you will understand your role and responsibilities as a first aider in the workplace. Furthermore, you will understand the legal requirements for first aid provision.
On returning to the workplace, you will have the confidence to react quickly in response to an incident. Quickly administering the right level of first aid can often be the difference between life and death.
Who Should Attend?
This course is suitable for your ‘nominated’ persons responsible for the first aid provision in your businesses. Furthermore, it is ideal for people who provide support to qualified first aiders in larger organisations and those with more complex risks.
To establish the first aid requirement within your business you must carry out a first aid needs analysis. Complete our First Aid requirements Calculator.
If your first aid needs analysis tells you that you need some people trained in first aid at work, they will need to attend our three-day QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work Course.
Why’s It Important?
Having designated first aiders in the workplace is a legal requirement. The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 state that employers should provide adequate and appropriate equipment and enough trained first aiders to help injured or ill staff.
Although accidents are preventable, they can still occur. It is essential to be prepared. Training your staff in first-aid will ensure that if an emergency does arise, it is dealt with promptly and effectively.
However, if you fail to provide emergency first aiders in the workplace, then you are putting everyone involved in your business at risk.
How would you feel if you had to tell someone’s family that their loved one died because no one in your business knew what to do?
