About this Course
The Level 3 First Aid at Work provides more advanced training than the Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work course. It is designed to ensure that on successful completion of the course delegates are trained first aiders in the workplace in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
According to the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981, employers are required to provide the necessary equipment, facilities and personnel to make sure that their employees receive immediate care if they hurt themselves or fall ill at work.
This training is suitable for low-risk workplaces (offices, restaurants, shops, etc.) where a qualified first aider is not required according to the first aid risk assessment. It is best practice to provide all employees with first aid training, especially those who are in-charge of making first aid arrangements. This course fulfils this requirement.
Emergencies can happen at any time and in any place, so you never really know when you may have to use your first aid skills in a potentially life-threatening situation. An estimated 600,000 people suffer non-fatal accidents at work every year. Hence it is important that employees are equipped with the correct skills to respond to accidents and emergencies in the workplace. Timely administration of first aid can prevent the condition of the injured person from deteriorating.
This course meets the criteria set by the HSE and is suitable for anyone who wants to achieve a Level 3 First Aid at Work (RQF) qualification as it replaces 1 day of the 3-day course. It can also be used as a refresher or induction training for the designated first-aider in the workplace, as it covers all practical aspects of first-aid as well. Upon successful completion, learners will achieve a completion certificate and will then be able to take the in-person exam at a recognised training centre to attain their RQF certificate.
Did you know: A blocked airway can kill someone in three to four minutes, but it can take more than eight minutes for an ambulance to arrive. So a simple procedure, such as opening someone’s airway, can help save their life whilst waiting for emergency medical services to arrive.
After successfully completing the course you will receive an e-certificate that you can download onto your device.
