First Aid Responder (3 Day) (PHECC)

Description: 

The First Aid Response course covers all of the occupational first-aid requirements for places of work as outlined by the Health and Safety Authority. Under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007, there is a requirement on employers, based on a risk assessment, to have a sufficient number of adequately trained first-aiders in the workplace. The specific requirements for first aid provision at work depends on several factors including the size of the workplace, the numbers employed, the hazards arising, dispersal of employees and access to medical services.

Following the FAR course participants should be able to:

  • Deal with life-threatening or potentially life-threatening conditions until the arrival of emergency medical services
  • Provide an adequate response for conditions not thought to be life-threatening but are necessary to prevent further harm before the emergency medical services arrive
  • Provide first-aid in a wide range of environments including the workplace, home and recreational settings
  • Display the requisite personal skills including composure, competence and self-confidence while understanding their limitations
