Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 4 sections
- 1 The Primary Survey
- 2 The Secondary Survey
- 3 First Aid Treatment
- 4 First Aid Procedures for FULL First Aiders
In a first aid situation, your priority is to quickly and calmly assess what’s happened and who needs help. In this section you will cover: Infection Control, The DR ABC, Calling the emergency services, CPR, Rescue Breaths, AEDs and more!
Now you’ve dealt with the immediate life-threatening conditions from your primary survey, your next step is to see if you can find out what’s wrong with the casualty. This section covers how to find out what's wrong, asking open questions like “What symptoms do you have?” and checking for injuries.
This section contains step-by-step guides to essential procedures and treatments you may be called on to provide to someone in your workplace. They are designed to recap your practical first aid training.
In this final section, we’re covering the extra first aid procedures and treatments required by a full first aider. This includes eye injuries, strokes, heart attacks, poisoning, anaphylaxis, asthma, epilepsy, diabetes, dislocations, muscle injuries and more...
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 IIRSM Approved 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

Really clear, focussed instruction
Excellent Course. Clear, focussed and in sensible, manageable chunks.
Really informative and easy to understand
Easy to follow, informative, useful
This refresher was definitely that. Things you thought you knew were either affirmed or adjusted slightly in this easy to follow training. It was not heavy yet not boring. I felt it was pitched exactly where it was needed. I have heard many comments around school about how useful this has been.
really enjoyed this course learned a lot about first aid such as what to do if things go bad at work and also out of work thanks a lot
It covers a lot of ground
It goes pretty fast, but covers a lot of topics. Thank you for suggesting that it was best done in chunks - I had 4 sessions at it before finally taking the examination. Constant repetition helped to drive some things home!
