First Aid at work Training In Northern Ireland
Author: Samuel Zelmer-Jackson
A new Emergency First Aid at Work one day training course is now available in Northern Ireland from Lantra Awards, following guidance from the Health and Safety Executive of Northern Ireland (HSENI).
Learners enrolled on this training course will be taught:
How to recognise different injuries and major illnesses
How to administer appropriate emergency first aid
The latest first aid techniques to update personal skills
By taking the Emergency First Aid at Work course, learners can gain a first aid qualification that meets the requirements of the new Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). The new Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work qualification is achievable on completion of the Emergency First Aid at Work course.
Lesley Barr, Head of New Product Development with Lantra Awards, said “This is a wonderful opportunity to help support the health and safety with NI businesses. This course has been a success in England, Scotland and Wales, so no doubt it will be highly beneficial to NI businesses.”
In 2009 the HSE in Great Britain introduced the EFAW one day course following a review of the Health and Safety Regulations. In preparation of accrediting this course in NI, the HSENI began a consultation period on 4 March for the training Code of Practice and course guidance. Based on this consultation, the HSENI will publish this guidance on 1 September 2011.
John Doe, Instructor with xyz, said: “This is a great opportunity to ensure that NI’s businesses have access to quality H&S training that delivers the skills they need to operate safely. As this is a one day course, it should be ideal to fit in with anyone’s busy schedule.”
