This Workplace First Aid Level 3 online first aid training course involves understanding how to handle potential hazards in the workplace and implementing appropriate measures to prevent accidents and injuries.
Workplace First Aid is a set of essential skills and knowledge that individuals acquire to provide immediate assistance and care to injured or ill individuals in the workplace until professional medical help arrives. It aims to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and promote recovery.
Workplace First Aid typically includes basic procedures such as assessing the scene for safety, checking the person’s responsiveness, and activating emergency services if necessary. This online first aid training course covers techniques like cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for maintaining blood circulation, the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for cardiac emergencies, and controlling bleeding through the application of direct pressure.
Other important skills included in this online first aid training course include managing choking incidents, stabilising fractures and sprains, providing appropriate first aid for burns and scalds, recognising and responding to medical emergencies such as heart attacks and strokes, and managing common workplace injuries like cuts, wounds, and eye injuries.
Workplace First Aid training equips individuals with the necessary skills and confidence to respond effectively during emergencies, ensuring the well-being of their colleagues and minimising the potential impact of injuries or illnesses in the workplace.
