The Health and Safety Regulations 1981 requires employers to provide suitable First Aid equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees if they become injured or ill at work.
This level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work course is a recognised 1 day course smaller businesses who, through their workplace risk assessment have identified the need for first aid trained personnel. This course is the minimum requirement whereas if a greater need has been identified then the full 3 day course qualification is required.
All of our Qualsafe Courses can take a maximum of 12 students, each of whom receives a comprehensive First Aid manual, certification and registration – and also gains the knowledge and confidence to become a competent first aider.
This course replaced the Appointed Persons course and is again a highly practical course. It lasts for six hours and 30 minutes and there is a theory assessment at the end of the course, as well as the practical assessments and formative assessment performed throughout the course. It is strongly recommended to undertake annual refresher training to ensure skills are kept up to date with current protocols.
