Employers are legally required to assess their workplace in regards to first aid needs which should indicate the level of first aid trained personnel, as well as equipment and facilities required. This qualification is better suited to smaller, lower risk organisations, or where a first aid risk assessment identified the need for someone trained in first aid emergencies only.
This qualification ensures all learners are able to react quickly, effectively, and safely to a wide variety of medical emergenies that could occur within the workplace, including basic life support, choking and minor injuries.
