Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work

Course Information

Where a workplace first aid risk assessment identifies a need for an Emergency First Aider in the Workplace, this one-day qualification meets the requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1982.

The learner will attain knowledge and the practical competence required to deal with a range of workplace first aid situations. The FAA Emergency First Aid at Work qualification is unit 1 of the three-day FAA First Aid at Work qualification.

From gaining this qualification learners could progress to completing unit 2 and being awarded the FAA First Aid at Work qualification.

 

Course Duration

A minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities, plus some pre-course activity could be required. Ideally, the course should be run over one day, but can be spread over a longer time period if you so desire, providing it is completed within 4 weeks of starting the course and the training sessions last for a minimum of two hours.

Course Content

A range of subjects are covered including:

  • Responsibilities and reporting

  • Resuscitation and AED awareness

  • Burns

  • Assessment of the situation

  • Anatomy

  • Choking

  • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty

  • Minor injuries

  • Epilepsy

  • Basic hygiene in First Aid

  • Bleeding control

  • Shock

Numbers

A maximum of 12 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment. A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role. The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.

 

Certification

Practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor, and a three year qualification will be issued to those who satisfy the criteria. In addition, the HSE strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of three hours.
