Health & Safety at Work is a big subject at present in all industries. To comply with the First Aid Regulations we have set up the courses below:
- Emergency Aid (Appointed Person)
This 1-day course enables a person to become the appointed person within their company.
- First Aid at Work
This 3-day course will enable a person to become a certificated first aider.
The table below details the needs for first aiders within a company:
|Category of Risk||Numbers employed at any location||Suggested number of First Aid personnel|
|Lower||Fewer than 25||At least 1 Appointed Person**|
|e.g. Shops, offices and libraries||25 – 50||At least 1 Emergency First Aider (1-day EFAW)|
|More than 50||1 First Aider (FAW) At least one per100 employees or part thereof|
|Higher||Fewer than 5||At least 1 Appointed Person**|
|e.g. Light engineering and assembly work, food processing, warehousing, extensive work with dangerous machinery or sharp instruments, construction, chemical manufacture, work involving special hazards* such as hydrofluoric acid or confined spaces.||Fewer than 25||At least 1 Appointed Person**|
|More than 50||1 First Aider (FAW) At least one for every 50 employees or part thereof|
|Ensure any injuries and illness that might occur can be dealt with by the First Aid personnel you provide|
**Where First Aiders are shown to be unnecessary, there is still a possibility of an accident or sudden illness, so you should consider providing qualified First Aiders.
**Additional training may be needed for First Aiders to deal with injuries resulting from special hazards.
**The type of injuries that might arise in working with those hazards identified will influence whether the First Aider should be trained in FAW or EFAW.
