Emergency First Aid at Work or Basic Life Support Qualification 

 

First Aid at Dynamic Training UK

According to recent Ambulance Services, England: 2013-14 report 8.47 million emergency calls a year were made to 999. This is an average of 16.1 calls per minute! Emergency vehicles responded to a total of 6.33 million1 calls out of which 4.9 per cent were in response to a call form 111 service. 
 
First aid is essential in all emergency cases. Given the average time it takes for an ambulance to attend to an emergency is 8 to 19 minutes1, the immediate care given by a first-aider is vital and can make the difference between life and death.
Emergencies happen every day in every environment whether it is a work place, school or home. When this happens, first aid basics will equip anyone around the injured or suddenly ill person to take control of the situation.
First Aid training is also a legal requirement in all workplaces, including those with less than five employees and self-employed. The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work1.
 
Dynamic Training UK provides Basic Life Support and Emergency First at Work training that meet these requirements and the Resuscitation Council recommendations.
 
Basic Life Support (includes Paediatric Basic Life Support)
 
The Basic Life Support is a half day course designed to teach lifesaving emergency skills to any member of the public or organisation in which people may need to respond to a life threatening emergency.
The course provides a practical based approach to learning Basic Life Support skills.
 The content includes as standard the following subjects:
 
  • What to do in an emergency
  • Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation
  • First aid for the unconscious casualty
  • First aid for the wounded or bleeding
 
The course content focuses on emergency care and includes CPR and other emergency first aid skills that will provide a person ‘first on the scene’ with the basic knowledge about lifesaving actions.
Candidates will learn the skills in the sequence they will be used in a life threatening emergency and also following the same priorities of care as all professional emergency responders. 
 
Basic Life Support is not designed to provide skills to personnel who will be responsible for managing an emergency situation for extended periods of time or where the complexity of injuries is likely to be great. It is therefore recommended that a minimum number of personnel are trained to a higher level within any organisation. Full advice can be obtained from HSE guidance where a risk based approach should be adopted.
 
Our learners said:
 
“This course has helped me in updating my previous knowledge and actually having a go at the practical aspect helped as I learn through doing stuff.”
 
“The overall training programme is excellent and helped to boost my confidence in practice”
 
“Very brilliant delivery combined with practical sessions.”
 
 
Courses start from £300 +VAT* for a group of 10 learners
 
*prices vary based on location and travel expenses.
