3 Day First Aid at Work Level 3 – 15th, 16th and 17th March
March 15 @ 9:00 am - March 17 @ 4:00 pm
Is your Workplace Prepared?
Did you know that an estimated 555,000 workers
in Britain sustained an injury at work in 2017/18?
The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all
employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees
receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at
work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing
a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate
first aid training. However, having the correct first aid
provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is
incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff!
The QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF)
qualification is specifically designed for individuals who wish
to act as a first aider in their workplace. Successful candidates
will learn how to manage a range of injuries and illnesses that
could occur at work and will be equipped with the essential
skills needed to give emergency first aid.
What’s more, as a regulated qualification, employers can
book this course for their employees and rest assured that
they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities for providing
quality first aid training, without having to undertake any
lengthy due diligence checks.
