Level 2 Emergency First Aid at Work Course (1 Day)

This course is HSE compliant and suitable for those wishing to learn basic first aid, support a qualified first aider and those employed in a low risk working environment with fewer than 50 people. Where an employer’s assessment of ‘First Aid Needs’ identifies that a First Aider (FAW trained) is not necessary, the minimum requirement for an employer is to appoint a person to take charge of the First Aid arrangements.

The duration is 6 hours and will equip delegates with the basic first aid skills to deal with an emergency situation and call for the emergency services. The course includes both theory and practical sessions, in a relaxed atmosphere, designed to boost a candidate's confidence.

The syllabus includes:

  • First Aid Priorities
  • Managing Incidents
  • Basic Life Support
  • Examination of a Casualty
  • Unconsciousness
  • Control of Bleeding
  • Burns and Scalds
  • Regulations
  • First Aid Kits
  • Recording and Reporting

Certification is dependent on continuous assessment, and passing theoretical and practical assessment.  Those students who complete the course to the required standard are issued with a certificate that is valid for three years.
