Emergency First Aid at Work Refresher


Emergency First Aid at Work Refresher E-Learning

What is Emergency First Aid? Well it’s exactly that, the first aid to be offered if an incident occurs. Not many of us are confronted with scenes of blood and gore in our everyday lives – so usually first aid could be as simple as sticking a plaster on a small cut. But what if you did find yourself confronted with a more serious situation.

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) strongly recommend First Aiders undertake annual refresher training. This course will assist in compliance of this recommendation, in a way that is convenient, cost efficient and time efficient.

This Emergency aid course will highlight some of the most common situations that you might come across and the actions that you can take to help. In the most serious situations a first aider’s role will be to assess the scene so that accurate information can be passed to Emergency services and then to act appropriately to try and increase the patients odds of survival.
