About this course

This course provides you with an introduction to the legal obligations of employers and employees with regard to first aid provision in the workplace. It also explains what first aid is all about, explains the role of the first aider and how to deal with minor injuries.

Chapter 1: Aim and purpose of First Aid
The chapter begins by setting out the scope, content and purpose of the course and then goes on to detail the legislation behind first aid provision in the workplace, defines what first aid is all about and describes the aim and purpose of first aid.

Chapter 2: Expectations of a First Aider
This chapter highlights what is expected of a first aider in the workplace, including the attributes expected of a first aider.

Chapter 3: Equipment; Infection
In this chapter, we explain what first aid equipment should be available in an average workplace and then go on to examine how infection can occur and how to minimise the risk of infection for the first aider, the casualty and others.

Chapter 4: Getting help
This chapter explores how to get help in a first aid situation. This includes help from passers-by, work colleagues, etc., as well as from health professionals and the emergency services.

Chapter 5: Treatment of minor injuries
In this final chapter, we cover the treatment of minor injuries. These are by far the most common type of injuries that a first aider will be presented with in the workplace.

How does the online training and online exam work?

Candidates will undertake an online multiple-choice assessment and will receive a certificate if successful (any certificates from an official awarding body are sent to you via email).

Our course comes with unlimited retakes.

The online multiple choice exam can be taken on a laptop with a camera in a suitably quiet location. Your activity on the screen and via the webcam is recorded during the whole assessment.
