Description

Where an employers assessment of First Aid needs identifies that a First Aider is not necessary, the minimum requirement for an employer is to appoint a person to take charge of the First Aid arrangements.

This includes looking after the equipment and facilities and calling the Emergency Services when required. Arrangements should be made for an Appointed Person to be available to undertake these duties at all times when people are at work. In the absence of the First Aider, employers must appoint a person for this purpose.

It should be remembered that Appointed Persons are not First Aiders and should not attempt to give First Aid for which they have not been trained.

This course is ideal for individuals who wish to gain knowledge of emergency procedures and attain a recognised qualification in First Aid.

Duration

A 6-hour course consisting of theory and practical work.

Syllabus

A range of subjects is covered including:-

In addition to the core subjects as listed above, an additional 1 hour is available to cover specific areas that are appropriate to your organisation.
