Qualsafe Award Level 2 in Emergency First Aid in the Workplace
This course is suited for those workplaces where a nominated person is required to take charge in the event of illness or accident and will benefit those who are Appointed Persons and/or support qualified First Aiders.
The HSE introduced a new set of regulations which came into force in October 2009 and it is a legal requirement for there to be First Aid cover in the workplace – whatever the size of the company. This particular course is ideal for smaller workplaces that present few health and safety risks, but still requires a nominated Emergency First Aider.
Who is this qualification for?
Nominated Emergency First Aiders or anyone wanting a comprehensive one day First Aid syllabus.
This is a one day programme (9.00am to 4.30pm)
An Emergency First Aid at Work Certificate, valid for three years, will be given at the end of the course.
Participants need to be aware that this course involved practical elements which will include kneeling, bending and carrying out resuscitation techniques.
