First Aid At Work
All first aid courses are delivered locally and dates and times arranged with the LDO.
In the event of an emergency, you will have the knowledge to deliver potentially life saving assistance.
You will learn how to examine a casualty, use a defibrillator, familiarize yourself with basic life support and learn how to control bleeding and trauma. These provide the skills to overcome a potentially threatening situation long enough for medically trained individuals to arrive on scene.
Other essential first aid skills are taught such as treating burns and scalds as well as assisting a choking individual. Recording and reporting is another area covered which is especially important for those in the working environment. You will be assessed throughout the day by a trained tutor. Given all the demonstrations have been carried out successfully, students will be awarded with a certification valid for three years.
