Work forces that have First aid training and keep their skills refreshed can help to dramatically improve work safety, Moral, and conditions, ensuring safety culture in the workplace is beneficial to all, we at Safety Training can help to install this into your workplace.
Covering Yorkshire and surrounding counties Safety Training First Aid Courses range from the short awareness lesson at three hours up to the EFA which is delivered over three days and has a maximum group size of twelve, this size allows each attendee to have specific focus on course content, enabling our trainer to give the maximum amount of knowledge and focus upon attendees.
Our trainer will explain to attendees the First Aid health and Safety Regulations and explain to them how to manage incidents effectively and accordingly; this explanation will go in to depth upon the appropriate method of examining a casualty and further actions and treatments if you were to come into contact with an incident that requires first aid. Attendees will get to grips with the treatment of unconsciousness, shock, bleeding, fractures, burns and scalds and this will be followed up with examples and therefore, students can understand the methods of treatment more effectively. In addition, attendees will be taught how to deal with heart attacks, eye injuries and general common illnesses. Our trainer will then proceed to explain the key knowledge upon basic life support in order to help attendees to understand its significance in the workplace and in day to day life. Attendees will then be taught about first aid kits and dressings and how to apply the contents to an incident, with practical sessions allowing students to understand the procedures of First Aid. The final section of the course is all about how to record and report incidents correctly, this is important in order to be proactive, next time an incident occurs.
On the final afternoon of the course attendees will be individually examined and upon successful completion will receive certification which is valid for three years however, an annual refresher is recommended, to further update knowledge.
