The First Aid at Work training course is designed to enable people designated as a First Aider to carry out appropriate first aid in an emergency situation at work. At the end of the course the candidate will be able to manage a casualty who is injured at work, or suffers from a serious illness, while waiting for more qualified medical help to arrive.
Our training courses are held in accordance with the syllabus of subjects set out in the First Aid at Work Regulations 1981 - Approved Code of Practice 2009.
Our courses meet the HSE’s criteria for what is expected of training providers, including the qualifications expected of trainers and assessors, monitoring and quality assurance systems, teaching and standards of first aid practice, and syllabus content and certification.
ROHS are unique in that we provide a recall system to inform employers when their First Aider's certificates are due to expire. They can then be booked for retraining with plenty of notice for the employer to arrange work shifts and cover.
All our courses now include AED Awareness as standard.
This follows the The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) announcement that from 31 December 2016, all first aid training providers must include automated external defibrillator (AED) training on first aid at work courses.
The HSE has revised its first aid at work syllabuses to include AED training, in response to changes to resuscitation guidelines which place more emphasis on the role of an AED in treating a casualty who is unresponsive and not breathing.
We will also continue to offer specific courses on how to use an AED for people who require it.
RECRUITMENT & SELECTION OF FIRST AIDERS
To decide on the numbers of first aiders required and the level of training needed, employers are required to carry out a First Aid Needs Assessment (go to Quick Downloads to access this document).
Generally speaking, FAW trained first aiders will be required in higher risk sites or places with a large workforce; lower risk sites may only require EFAW trained staff, but this will be dependent on other factors that will be identified during the First Aid Needs Assessment.
