First Aid At Work
In the event of an emergency, you will have the knowledge to deliver potentially life saving assistance.
You will learn how to examine a casualty, use a defibrillator, familiarize yourself with basic life support and learn how to control bleeding and trauma. These provide the skills to overcome a potentially threatening situation long enough for medically trained individuals to arrive on scene.
Other essential first aid skills are taught such as treating burns and scalds as well as assisting a choking individual. Recording and reporting is another area covered which is especially important for those in the working environment. You will be assessed throughout the day by a trained tutor. Given all the demonstrations have been carried out successfully, students will be awarded with a certification valid for three years.
