Learning outcomes.

Assessment of First Aid at Work needs.

Employers are required to carry out an assessment of first-aid needs. This involves consideration of workplace hazards and risks, the size of the organisation and other relevant factors, to determine what first-aid equipment, facilities and personnel should be provided.

If in doubt, we can provide a consultancy service. There is also a free HSE leaflet, which contains a useful checklist covering the points employers should consider when carrying out the assessment.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers from the QNUK First Aid at Work (FAW) Stoke course

What is first aid at work?

People at work can suffer injuries or be taken ill. It doesn’t matter whether the injury or illness is caused by the work they do or not, it is important to give them immediate attention and call an ambulance in serious cases. You should make arrangements to ensure this happens. It can save lives and prevent minor injuries becoming major ones.

What do I need to do?

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require you to provide adequate and appropriate first-aid equipment, facilities and people so your employees can be given immediate help if they are injured or taken ill at work.

What is ‘adequate and appropriate’ will depend on the circumstances in your workplace and you should assess what your first-aid needs are.

The minimum first-aid provision on any work site is: a suitably stocked first-aid kit; an appointed person to take charge of first-aid arrangements; information for employees about first-aid arrangements. It is important to remember that accidents and illness can happen at any time. Provision for first aid needs to be available at all times people are at work.

How long does the First Aid at Work course take to complete?

The classroom course is held over 3 days.

Will I be issued with a certificate upon successful FAW First Aid at Work completion?

Yes. On successful completion the learner will receive an accredited certificate. The certificate will be forwarded at a later date. A proof of pass can be immediately provided if required though.

How long is the FAW First Aid at Work certificate valid for?

Certification for this course is valid for 3 years but the HSE recommends a refresher course every year. To remain certified in this area, you will need to take the refresher course before the expiry date.

Are there any entry requirements for FAW First Aid at Work?

This qualification is aimed at those over 16 who are able to undertake the responsibilities associated with being a workplace emergency first aider.

Learners between 14-16 years can undertake the qualification, however they should not be relied upon by employers to be a sole emergency first aider.

Due to the language of the assessment, it is recommended that learners have sufficient command of the English language in order to understand the assessment and to undertake the recommended assessment methods.

Attendees will be required to demonstrate First Aid procedures as they would in a real work environment. This includes providing CPR to a casualty who is on the floor, therefore be physically capable of doing so.
