Level 3 FIRST AID at WORK COURSE (QCF)

The First Aid at Work course is a 3 day course. The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 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. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed.

What is ‘adequate and appropriate’ will depend on the circumstances in the workplace. This includes whether trained first-aiders are needed, what should be included in a first-aid box and if a first-aid room is required. Employers should carry out an assessment of first-aid needs to determine what to provide.

Once qualified, holders of this First Aid at Work certificate can be used as First Aiders in the workplace in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. This course can be adapted to suit a particular audience, for example, clerical or engineering staff. The First Aid at Work course is run over three days (18 hours) and includes both theory and practical sessions. By arrangement the course can be run on non-consecutive days, for example - one day a week over three weeks.

The First Aid at Work Syllabus Includes:

- Role and Responsibility of the First Aider 
- First Aid Priorities 
- Managing Incidents 
- Examination of a Casualty
- Unconsciousness
- Basic Life Support (CPR)
- Control of Bleeding (including catastrophic bleeding)

Students are assessed throughout the course through a series of practical and theory assessments, designed to test student knowledge and competence.  Upon successful completion of this course and assessments, certificates will be valid for 3 years. When due for a requalification of this course, learners need to attend the Level 3 First Aid at Work Requalification course (evidence of the previous course will be required).
