QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work Re-Qualification
What’s It About?
This first aid at work requalification course will update your employees’ knowledge of first aid at work. It will also allow revision and practice sessions in preparation for a written assessment.
Who Should Attend?
This course is perfect for anyone who currently holds a valid first aid at work certificate close to expiry.
Why Is It Important?
Having designated qualified 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 can be prevented, they can still occur, so it’s important to be prepared. Having adequately trained personnel will ensure that emergency situations are dealt with in a prompt and effective manner.
The First Aid at Work qualification is only valid for three years. Therefore before it expires, you have a legal obligation to ensure that your employees renew this qualification. If you don’t, you are putting everyone involved in your business at risk: your employees, customers, and visitors.
On average, it takes 8 minutes for an ambulance to arrive; the actions taken during those eight minutes are critical.
How would you feel if you just had to stand and watch because you didn’t have the knowledge and skills to make a difference?
And 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?
What Will You Gain?
By attending this first aid at work requalification course, your employees will update their first aid knowledge, skills and qualification.
On returning to the workplace, they will have a renewed confidence to react quickly to any incident.
They will also have knowledge of the different types of injuries and illnesses that may occur and know what to do and how to treat them.
