These courses are suitable for schools, colleges, factories and any workplace where the risk for injury or illness is elevated. The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require you to provide adequate and appropriate first-aid equipment, facilities and trained people, so your employees can be given immediate help if they are injured or taken ill at work. This should always be identified through a workplace First Aid risk assessment.
This is an 18 hour, 3 day course but can be delivered over different days on different weeks. We will always try to accommodate your schedules and offer early start/late finish courses.
Many Horsham businesses and companies have already benefitted from Assist First Aid’s bespoke attitude to delivering First Aid at Work courses within their workplace environments. Why not let us offer the same benefits to you?
What will you learn on a First Aid at Work course?
You will learn how to deal with common injuries, such as dealing with bleeding (minor and severe), burns (minor and severe) and choking. You will also learn the concepts of wound management, as well as the correct procedure for taking care of a casualty, including primary surveys, CPR, and how to assess a first aid situation. There are things to know about the role of a first aider and the correct contents of a first aid kit, on top of serious situations like bone, muscle and joint injuries, seizures, head injuries, and spinal injuries. It is also important to know how to deal with unconscious casualties and put them in the recovery position where necessary. As well as this already long list of vital First Aid skills, we will train you in how to deal with chest pains (including heart attacks), allergies, shock, strokes, sprains and strains, asthma, eye injuries, diabetes and poisons.
