First Aid at Work
A First Aid at Work regulated qualification is ideal for those already working or preparing to work and wish to become a First Aider in the workplace for the purposes of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations (NI) 1982.
The recommended course duration for the standard First Aid at Work course is 3 days and topics covered include: the roles and responsibilities of the First Aider; assessing an incident, recognising signs and symptoms of injury and illness, assisting a casualty who is suffering from major injury and illness, chest injuries, spinal injuries and anaphylaxis. The qualification is assessed via on-going oral and/or written questioning and practical demonstration.
In May 2016 the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) and Awarding Organisations announced that computer based blended training is now allowed for all workplace First Aid courses so You can now become a fully qualified First Aider in the workplace, with two days of classroom training after completing this online course. Reduce your training and travel costs by using our engaging, blended online video based course. Learn at your pace, one to one with your instructor at a time that suits you.
A modern approach to training backed up by years of experience providing online, blended and classroom courses. Clear, concise and engaging, when you choose All First Aid you reduce the cost, not the quality of your training.
All successful students will be issued with a Certificate, along with a wallet-sized plastic card detailing their achievement. The HSE dictate, that to be valid in the workplace, learners must retake the First Aid at Work qualification before the expiry of 3 years from the date that the original qualification was achieved. If no more than one calendar month over this 3 year period, you may qualify to take the course again in two days rather than three. We call this our ‘requalification’ course. You must give a copy of our original certificate to your instructor to qualify. Please contact All First Aid Traiing using the form below for further information.
The HSE strongly recommend that all first aiders complete an annual First Aid Refresher course and our online course meets this requirement.
All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements.
Please be advised that the classroom course has a minimum age requirement of 16..
