About this course

It's estimated that around 555,000 workplace injuries happen every single year in UK workplaces.

It's therefore essential that workplaces have the correct people in place to deal with potentially life-threatening situations and that other staff have a good understanding of how to react in an emergency. 

This CPD Accredited First Aid at Work Training is the perfect course for workplaces of all sizes, regardless of their industry. Using high-quality video examples, your staff will gain a solid understanding of:

  • the need for a first aider to be able to record incidents, prevent cross-infection, understand their role and assess situations quickly to act safely and effectively
  • how to administer first aid to those who are; unconscious, choking, burned, wounded and bleeding or someone suffering from shock
  • how to administer first aid for minor injuries (cuts, grazes, bruises, minor burns, etc.)
  • how to administer CPR and how to use an AED
  • as well as how to administer first aid to a casualty with: injuries to bones, muscles, chest injuries, eye injuries, poisoning, anaphylaxis 
  • be able to recognise signs of a heart attack, stroke, epileptic seizures, asthma attacks or diabetes and provide first aid

A useful refresher

The online first aid training was a useful refresher. It was easy to use with good clear information presented with actual an paramedic modelling and bullet points. It was good to be able to stop at any point and go back if necessary and also to swap between devices without losing what had been achieved. I lost internet connection at home part way through but was able to continue on my smart phone.
