Emergency First Aid

COURSE AIM:  An opportunity for learners to gain skills that would enable them to manage life-threatening situations. The course covers training identified by the Health & Safety Executive as being required by the appointed person in the workplace.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:  This course leads to a Certificate of Competence in Emergency First Aid.  It is a useful course for the community, home, voluntary workers or for the appointed first aider in the workplace. The course covers:

  • Approaching the scene of an accident or illness
  • Assessment and management an unconscious casualty
  • Basic life support
  • Management of choking
  • Management of wounds and bleeding
  • Recognition and management of a heart attack
  • Recognition and treatment of shock
  • Dealing with asthma
  • Working with other first aiders
  • Leading the team in an emergency
  • First aid in the workplace, including recommended contents of first aid boxes
  • An opportunity to discuss other relevant first aid

If you are completing an appointed person course your training will focus upon the fundamental, yet more basic level tasks. You will also cover essential emergency treatments such as the recovery position and how to perform CPR.

While they can offer support to a qualified first aider, appointed persons are not first aiders and should only give treatment in techniques they have been trained in.
