The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.
A First Aid Needs Risk Assessment will identify the level of first aid cover your workplace requires.
Our First Aid Training covers:
- Understanding the roles and responsibilities of a First Aider
- How to assess an incident
- How to manage and assist in various emergency workplace situations including but not limited to:
- Unresponsive casualties
- External bleeding
- Minor injuries
- Injury to bones and muscles
- Suspected head, chest and spinal injuries
- Burns and scalds
- Eye injury
|First Aid at Work||3 days||Off-site|
|Emergency First Aid||1 day||Off-site|
Off-site courses will take place at a BPIF specified venue and are subject to availability. Dependent on the number of attendees, these courses could be delivered on-site.
- Managing Safety Training The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act states that employers have a duty to ensure the provision of information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of employees at work.
- Forklift Truck Training The HSE Approved Code of Practice also states that employers have a responsibility to provide adequate supervision. It is therefore essential that supervisors have sufficient training and knowledge to recognise safe and unsafe practices in their working environment.
- Fire Marshal/Warden Training The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order states that the employer’s designated responsible person must appoint and provide adequate training for one or more competent persons to assist in undertaking preventive and protective fire measures in the workplace.
- Manual Handling Training Incorrect manual handling is one of the most common causes of injury at work. It causes work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) which account for over a third of all workplace injuries.
- Safe Working at Height Falls from height are one of the biggest causes of workplace fatalities and major injuries. Working at Height Regulations specify that it is an employer’s duty to ensure that people working at height have sufficient skills, knowledge and experience.
