Why you should learn first aid
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure performed on people who are not breathing or show abnormal breathing patterns. It is a procedure that can save a person who suffers from sudden cardiac arrest. CPR is easy to learn and is taught to tens of thousands of people each year. Get in touch with us to find out more about CPR and other subjects on our first aid training courses.
Our first aid courses and training include:
First Aid Refreshers
There is nothing worse than a first-aider not knowing what to do in an emergency because they have not maintained their skills. HSE strongly recommends that first-aiders undertake annual refresher training. Although not mandatory, a refresher course can help maintain your basic skills and keep up-to-date with any changes in first aid procedures. We offer first aid refreshers through online modules that are easily accessible.
Advanced First Aid & Trauma Care
Does your work or business involve the use of dangerous machinery? Are your workers trained and prepared to deal with injuries that require more than normal first aid skills? Can they work as a team to prevent serious and traumatic bleeding, using advanced medical equipment that is not found in a first aid kit?
This course is designed for arborists and machinists in other industries who often use chainsaws and other heavy cutting equipment where a lapse in concentration or accident could cause catastrophic bleeding to a major artery in the neck, arms or legs leaving the casualty with only 3 to 4 minutes to live.
Working as an individual until more help and equipment arrives, you or your employees would need to be able to use tourniquets, pressure bandages, haemostatic agents and gauze to either control or stop the bleeding. This equipment is carried in a pouch on the belt and can be administered to your own injuries or to your co-workers.
There will likely be a need to administer airway management equipment and to provide emergency oxygen in conjunction with a defibrillator. where there is severe or traumatic blood loss, the casualty’s vital organs and particularly their brain will require oxygen to keep them alive.
