First aid at work certificate

This course is suitable for people aged 16+ who might need to provide first aid by responding to a wide range accidents, injuries and illnesses that they could encounter in their workplace. It is ideal for organisations whose needs assessment has identified a requirement for additional first aid training, such as having employees with a disability or a medical condition. In addition to the topics covered on an emergency first aid at work course, this course covers treatment for a variety of injuries and medical conditions.

• is bleeding
• is suffering from shock
• has burns
• feels faint
• has been poisoned
• has a head injury
• has hypothermia or heat exhaustion
• has an injury to a bone, muscle or joint (including spinal injuries).
Learners will also be able to help a casualty who is having a:
• heart attack, including the administration of aspirin
• angina attack
• asthma attack
• severe allergic reaction
• diabetic emergency.
The course also includes information on:
• assessing a casualty
• monitoring a casualty
• where to get help
• electrical incidents
• accident recording and reporting
• the control of substances hazardous to health (COSHH).
The course runs from 9am until 5pm each day, with a lunch break between the morning and afternoon sessions. We recommend that you bring your own lunch, as not all venues have food outlets on site or nearby.
On successful completion of this course, you will receive a first aid at work certificate which is valid for three years by CS- 15. This course meets the requirements specified by the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
