Course Description

This course is of a practical nature and can take place at our training facility or at your venue.  High Peak First Aid is a Qualsafe Centre for First Aid at Work Training (Centre No: 906483).  Training at your venue is often beneficial as participants are learning in the environment where they may need to use their skills.

Employers have an obligation under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and Approved Code of Practice (ACOP L74, Second Edition) to make adequate and appropriate first aid provision for their workforce. It is recommended that someone is able to undertake first aid duties at all times when people are at work.  Every place of work should have undertaken a risk assessment to decide the need for first aid in their workplace.  An Employer should have thought about the types of injuries and illness that have previously occurred or may occur in the future if their current activities may change.  The European Resuscitation Council issued guidelines in October 2015 with reference to first aid training.  One recommendation is the use of haemostats and tourniquets to arrest a life threatening bleed.  This has also been confirmed by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Further details for the additional two hours of training can be seen on the Celox and Tourniquet Course page.
