This three day course will give you a qualification to the highest level of First Aid, meeting Health & Safety (First Aid) standards. It is a requirement of the Health & Safety law that employers should provide a safe and healthy environment for their employees. If the assessment of First Aid needs highlights the need for qualified First Aider’s, then this three day course will provide you with suitable, highly trained personnel.
Injuries and illness can ruin lives and businesses. Solutions are often simple and cheap and the people best placed to make farms safer are farmers and their employees. Health and safety is a fundamental requirement of a sustainable farming business and should be regarded as an essential part of farm business management. Unwise risk taking is an underlying problem in the industry and those working on their own are especially vulnerable.
This is a great opportunity for anyone involved in farms in any capacity, whether a Farmer / worker, employed or self-employed to obtain a certificate in First Aid. Some participants are required to possess a First Aid at Work (3 day) certificate to be able to fulfil their chosen professions requirements. The courses includes certification which lasts 3 years and will be useful not just for when you’re on the farm, but in any first aid emergency you may find yourself needing to assist.
All students will be continually assessed by the instructor on their ability to act safely, promptly and effectively for a casualty who is unresponsive, requires CPR and who is wounded and bleeding. Subject to assessment, all participants will be issued with a First Aid at Work certificate (and wallet card) approved by the Health and Safety Executive. This qualification is valid for three years which can be re-newed by attending a suitable Two-Day re-qualification course.
