First Aid at Work Requalification
Level 3 Award (RQF) - 2 Day Training Course
The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.
This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate first aid training.
However, having the correct first aid provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff!
The QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF) re-qualification is specifically designed for individuals who wish to act as a first aider in their workplace.
Successful candidates will refresh and upgrade their skills and knowledge in how to manage a range of injuries and illnesses that could occur at work and will be equipped with the essential skills needed to give emergency first aid.
What’s more, as a regulated qualification, employers can book this course for their employees and rest assured that they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities for providing quality first aid training, without having to undertake any lengthy due diligence checks introduced in the recent HSE changes.
The HSE strongly recommends that you requalify within a month of your certificate expiring.
