Wednesday 23rd August 9.30am
Join us on Wednesday for a fully certified 1 day emergency First Aid at Work course at our training centre in Caerphilly. Cost £95 + VAT. Our location is 5 minutes walk from Caerphilly train station and our smart modern training facilities include an on-site cafe for breaks and lunch.
Primary Care Skills
We will teach you how to deal with life threatening conditions learning these skills: Scene Safety Assessment, Primary Assessment, Barrier Use, CPR Rescue Breathing, CPR Chest compressions, AED use, Choking, Dealing with Serious Bleeding, Spinal Injuries and Shock Management.
The use of an AED device is now compulsory within the recommendation of HSE EFAW first aid. CPR alone is unlikely to restart the heart of a sudden cardiac arrest victim. An AED can deliver a shock automatically to the heart when an abnormal heart rhythm is detected. Using the latest AED trainers with both visual and audio cues the student will simulate this emergency and learn how to confidently deal with a sudden cardiac arrest.
In addition, as part of the EFAW (HSE recommended) syllabus we teach the responsibilities of the appointed person such as assessment of needs in the workplace, First Aid Kits, Record Keeping (accident book) and duties of the first aider.
Secondary CARE skills
The Secondary care section of our training course deals with first aid skills such as injury assessment, illness assessment, bandaging and splinting.
The skills you learn throughout the day will be assessed for competency leading to certification at the end of the course.
