WHAT IF YOU ARE THE ONLY OTHER PERSON THERE?
Unfortunately at some point in our lives most of us will witness or be involved in a first aid emergency.
Rather than rely on some-one else to deal with the situation would you like to be able to offer immediate help yourself?
At BAES we deliver a range of First Aid courses that range from non-accredited Basic Paediatric First Aid (1 day course) aimed at parents, prospective parents, grand-parents or carers. This course will help you to deal with a number of childhood emergencies. We also offer the qualification Paediatric First Aid (3 day course) which is aimed at people who work with children and want to feel confident and very well prepared to intervene and administer first aid if required.
First Aiders in the workplace
A first-aider is someone who has undertaken training appropriate to the circumstances. Employers can complete a needs assessment to decide the appropriate level to which first-aiders should be trained. Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) training enables a first-aider to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill at work. First aid training includes the EFAW syllabus and also equips the first-aider to apply first aid to a range of specific injuries and illness. We run Emergency First Aid at Work (1 day course) and a more in depth First Aid at Work (3 day course)
For guidance on providing the appropriate level of first aid at work see the HSE booklet First aid at work, The Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, 3rd Edition published 2013, pages 10-12 www.hse.gov.uk.
To help keep their basic skills up to date, it is strongly recommended that first-aiders undertake annual refresher training.
Breathe life into your CV
These nationally recognised qualifications can also help your CV stand out from the crowd and are a very relevant part of your Continuing Professional Development - no matter what profession you are in. Everyone in a workplace environment would benefit from the accredited Emergency First Aid at Work and if you already have this qualification you may wish to do our Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an AED (1 day course) and be trained on the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to further enhance your skills.
