Every workplace, large and small, needs at least one confident, competent first aider who is up-to-date with the latest techniques and procedures for dealing with the huge range of medical incidents and emergencies that can occur in the workplace at any time. This online course is designed to enhance and refresh the knowledge of those already qualified in First Aid at Work.
Knowledge Can Save Lives
Even if a company’s first aider has up-to-date qualifications, the Health and Safety Executive strongly recommend that all designated first aiders take an annual refresher course to ensure their knowledge remains both comprehensive and current in crucial areas such as the priorities of first aid, basic life support, breathing problems and the treatment of different types of shock.
This easy-to-follow course is split into five main sections which busy first aiders who have to juggle many other responsibilities can access both on an annual basis or as and when they need to revisit their learning on a specific subject.
