Training

UK Emergency Support Services provide a myriad of First Aid and Specialist First Aid Courses and Qualifications, delivered as part of a bespoke package that truly is, tailored to suit the needs of our clients.

First Aid is a ‘must have’ set of life saving skills in most walks of life, but for some, it’s a necessary expense.  That doesn’t mean that training should be generic and boring.

Our courses are fun, engaging and interactive, but most importantly, delegates leave with the confidence and competence to use their new and updated skills in the real world…where it really matters.

Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work

Where an organisation’s risk assessment of First Aid needs identifies that there is a requirement for Emergency First Aid at Work practitioners, then this national Award in Emergency First Aid at Work satisfies the requirements of the regulatory body for First Aid – the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). All learners will have the skills and knowledge to provide the organisation with Emergency First Aider’s that can provide treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner.

Level 3 First Aid Work

This comprehensive three-day course covers a wide range of first aid emergencies, enabling all participants to deal with emergency situations with confidence in a prompt, safe and effective way. In addition, this course will include any protocol changes that may have arisen since their last training course. This course will give the participants a qualification to the highest level of First Aid, meeting the statutory requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

Level 3 First Aid at Work Re-Qualification

This 2-day First Aid at Work course is designed for those who currently hold a First Aid at Work qualification and are due to expire.

The important thing to remember is that as soon as the certificate expires, the First Aider is no longer considered competent to act as a First Aider in the workplace which may well leave the employer with a shortfall of First Aiders. Therefore, it would be prudent to arrange their requalification before they expire.

Level 3 Immediate Management of Anaphylaxis

An Anaphylactic shock, or anaphylaxis, is a life-threatening, serious allergic reaction to an allergen such as food substances or insect stings. If it is not treated appropriately, it may cause death. This training is for qualified First Aiders and Emergency First Aiders to enable them to recognise and treat anaphylaxis safely and effectively.

When administering a medication, it is important to recognise and differentiate between allergic reactions and the potentially life-threatening anaphylactic reactions immediately. It is also essential to determine whether the individual has had an allergic or anaphylactic response to the medication in the past or prior to administration.

This course is suitable for all First Aiders and healthcare professionals, as well as those in a high risk environment where such medication is available.

Level 2 First Aid Risk Assessment

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and trained personnel, to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.

What is ‘adequate and appropriate’ will depend on the circumstances in the workplace. This includes whether trained First Aiders are needed, what should be included in a First Aid box and if a First Aid room is required.

In order to produce a Risk Assessment of First Aid Needs, consideration of workplace hazards and risks, the size of the organisation and other relevant factors need to be taken into account in order to determine what First Aid equipment, facilities and trained personnel should be provided.

This course will provide detailed information about the considerations and relevant factors in order to determine the needs and requirements and to ultimately produce a Risk Assessment of First Aid Needs for the business.

Catastrophic Bleeding Control

Catastrophic Bleeding is a serious, life threatening condition that requires immediate action.  Unfortunately, due to a rise in knife and gun crime, terrorism and general serious accidents, being able to control a serious bleed is a vital skill for all first aiders and those working in environments where there is a risk of serious bleeds occurring.

This course provides learners with the awareness of catastrophic bleeds, treatments, hemorrhage control dressings and equipment.  Delivered in an interactive way, combining both practical and theoretical elements, this course can be tailored to specific working environments and situations.

Annual Refresher Training

Although it is not mandatory, the HSE strongly recommend that HSE qualified First Aiders and Emergency First Aiders undertake an annual refresher course in order to keep their skills up-to-date and refreshed.

The qualification period for both groups of First Aiders is 3-years. It was felt that this period was too long without any additional training.

Appointed Person Training

Where an employer’s assessment of First Aid needs identifies that a First Aider or Emergency First Aider is not necessary, the minimum requirement on an employer is to appoint a person to take charge of the First Aid arrangements, including looking after equipment and facilities, and calling the emergency services when required.
