QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work
What’s It About?
This three day first aid at work course offers an interactive experience for your employees and provides them with the knowledge and skills required to give effective life support, diagnose and treat a wide range of injuries or illnesses and maintain care and comfort for the casualty.
This course includes everything that is covered on a one day Level 2 Emergency First Aid at Work course and also provides in-depth training in treating a wide range of specific injuries and illnesses.
Who Should Attend?
This course is perfect for those staff acting as the recognised first aider at work in companies with a large number of staff, in a higher risk workplace or who work in an environment where there are members of the general public.
In order to establish the first aid requirement within your business, you are legally obliged to carry out a detailed First Aid Needs Analysis. Complete our First Aid requirements Calculator.
Why’s It Important?
Having designated first aiders in the workplace is a legal requirement. The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 state that employers should provide adequate and appropriate equipment and enough trained first aiders to help injured or ill staff.
Although accidents can be prevented, they can still occur so it’s important to be prepared. Having adequately trained first aid personnel onsite will ensure that if an emergency situation does arise, it will be dealt with in a prompt and effective manner.
If you fail to provide qualified first aiders then you are putting everyone involved in your business at risk: your employees, your customers and your visitors.
How would you feel if you had to tell someone’s family that their loved one died because no one in your business knew what to do?
What Will You Gain?
By attending this comprehensive and practical course, your employees will understand their role and responsibilities as a qualified first aider in the workplace as well as the legal requirements for first aid provision.
On returning to the workplace, they will have the confidence to react quickly in response to any type of incident. They will have an in-depth knowledge of the different types of injuries and illnesses that may occur in the workplace and will know what to do and how to treat them.
