Our online first aid course is designed for those that feel they need to be able to react to minor accidents that may happen in the workplace and that have less than 5 employees, or for those that want to get all the basics in their head before attending an HSE approved course.
Having said that, the syllabus is identical to that of the Emergency First Aid at work course with the a couple of exceptions which are Defibrillation and Resuscitation which are best carried out in a classroom environment .
So if you are intending to go on an HSE approved course you will find this a very useful way of boning up.
The course is presented in a very interesting way with several movies, voice-overs and course notes.
The following topics are covered:
Roles and responsibilities of the first aider
First aid kits
Strains and Sprains
£50 + VAT
This NOT a replacement for the statutory HSE approved courses of which there are three variations:
First aid at work course (3 days) typically £200
Requalification (2 days)
Emergency first aid at work (1 day) typically £80
We also have to point out that this course does not remove the obligations on an employer for first aid training in line with the guidelines below:
|Less than 5 employees
||1 appointed person which means someone nominated to look after the first aid box and phone emergency services in the case of an incident.
|5 to 50 employees
||1 first aider trained in Emergency first aid at work or First aid at work depending on the type of injuries that may occur
|More than 50 employees
||1 first aider trained in First aid at work for every 50 employed (or part thereof)
