SES run regular scheduled 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work training courses from our training centre in Essex. We can also run ‘on site’ Emergency First Aid at Work courses at your premises or arrange a course specifically for you at our training centre. All of our First Aid Courses are regulated by OFQUAL.
Where an organisation’s risk assessment of First Aid needs identifies that there is a requirement for Emergency First Aid at Work practitioners, then these national Awards for Emergency First Aid at Work satisfies the requirements of the regulatory body for First Aid – the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
All learners will have the skills and knowledge to provide the organisation with Emergency First Aider’s that can provide treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe an effective manner.
A minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities, plus some pre-course activity could be required.
A range of subjects is covered including:
Responsibilities and reporting
Assessment of the situation
Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
Basic hygiene in the First Aid
Assessment is ongoing by the instructor, along with a multiple choice question paper, and a three year qualification will be issued to those who satisfy the criteria. In addition, the HSE strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of three hours.
