Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (RQF)
Did you know that an estimated 611,000 workers in Britain sustained an injury at work in 2014/15. The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 places a duty for all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.
For instance, one of the duties is to carry out a risk assessment, which will include assessing the number of First Aiders needed and the level of First Aid training required.
In conclusion, having the correct First Aid provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff!
The Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work qualification is designed for individuals who wish to act as an Emergency First Aider in their workplace.
Upon successful completion of this qualification, candidates will be equipped with the essential skills needed and above all be able to give safe, prompt and effective first aid in emergency situations.
In addition, as a regulated qualification, employers can book this course for their employees and be assured that they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities for providing quality first aid training, without having to undertake any lengthy due diligence checks introduced in the recent HSE changes.
