First Aid at Work Re-qualifier

Refresher First Aid Photo

First Aid Angels is now offering first aid qualifications accredited by an OFQUAL recognised organisation - QUALSAFE

The Requalifier first aid at work course is a level 3 RQF award.

The Health and Safety Regulations 1981 requires employers to provide suitable First Aid equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees if they become injured or ill at work.

This QUALSAFE two-day course is practically as well as theoretically based and provides a high level of training. All our courses are run by trained, professional nurses and fire fighters and first aiders.

All of our Qualsafe First Aid courses can take a maximum of 12 students, each of whom receives a First Aid manual, certification and registration as well as gaining the knowledge and confidence to become a competent first aider.

The latest training equipment is used in all courses (training manikins are at a student ratio of 1:3), along with the use of PowerPoint presentations, lectures, and demonstrations and plenty of hands-on practice for all students.

Once the courses are completed, our students are assessed continually in their practical sessions and they have a Multiple Choice question paper too and, if successful, will become recognised first aiders with a Qualsafe approved certificate valid for three years.

      * It is essential that adequate provision is made at all times people are at work. Employers therefore need to ensure there is cover for annual leave and other planned absences of first-aiders or appointed persons. Employers should also consider what cover is needed for unplanned and exceptional absences such as sick leave or special leave due to bereavement.
