This course is ideal for low hazard environments (e.g. offices, shops, libraries) or where your needs assessment identifies a requirement for a first aider trained in emergency first aid at work.
If your needs assessment identifies additional hazards or risks or staff with a medical condition such as asthma, diabetes or a heart condition we recommend the first aid at work course as this covers a broader syllabus including the recognition and treatment of a wider range of conditions.
The HSE guidelines set out a syllabus for Emergency first aid at work in accordance with set criteria for selecting a training provider. The guidance cites the specific use of teaching materials such as the current edition of the first aid manual of the Voluntary Aid Societies (including the British Red Cross), who are acknowledged by the HSE guidance as standard setters for first aid practice.
By selecting the British Red Cross as your training provider you can be confident that attendees receive a quality learning experience built on our extensive experience and input to the HSE requirements.
On completion of training, successful candidates will be able to:
Emergency first aid at work certificate; valid for three years.
For best practice we support the HSE recommendation to complete an annual update of your first aid skills.
Our courses are renowned for providing a quality learning experience offering hands-on practical training that leave first aiders feeling confident to use their skills in a real life situation. It is therefore important that participants are physically able to perform the relevant actions and techniques included in the HSE syllabus.
As the HSE requires at least six training and assessment contact hours for this course, participants must be in attendance for the entire course duration to be eligible for evaluation and qualify for a certificate for Emergency first aid at work.
