What will I learn?
The content of this course has been designed to build knowledge and confidence. It will teach you to recognise and treat various illnesses and incidents correctly and efficiently.
Topics covered in the Emergency First Aid at Work course:
The Role of a First Aider
Use of equipment
The importance of recording incidents and actions
Basic hygiene and preventing cross-infection
The priorities of first aid
Assessing and managing incidents
Treatment of an unconscious casualty
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
Wounds and bleeding
Minor injuries, including small cuts, grazes, bruises, and small splinters
Minor burns and scalds
The practical elements of this course are essential, as they provide you with vital hands-on experience. You must be physically able to take part in the practical parts of the course. The HSE requires you to attend the full duration of the course, and candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2) to be eligible for evaluation and qualify for an Emergency First Aid at Work certificate.
Assessment and Certification
You will be continually assessed throughout the course by one of our qualified trainers. Upon successful completion, you will receive an Emergency First Aid at Work Certificate valid for three years. The HSE recommends that all qualified first aiders should refresh their knowledge and first aid skills every year. We offer an on-site annual skills update course that can be delivered at your premises to up to 12 first aiders. If you have a 1-day Emergency First Aid at Work certificate that is due to expire and you are still working in a low-risk working environment, then to re-qualify, you must complete the 1-day course again. This course can train a candidate to be a new first aider or re-qualify those who are due to expire. If your risk assessment has now identified your working environment as high-risk, then please consider the full 3-day First Aid at Work course.
On-site training room requirements
It is recommended that the room size should be approximately 20 x 30 feet for a full 12-person course. The room should be large enough to seat all candidates comfortably in a semicircle formation. The floor space in the centre should be clean and uncluttered, as this will be used for the practical parts of the course. The trainer will also require a flip chart, if one is available.
