First Aid Essentials

Level 2 Award (RQF)

First Aid Essentials (RQF)

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate first aid training. However, having the correct first aid provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff!

Ideal for those who are able to access CQC (Care Quality Commission) funding, the Level 2 Award in First Aid Essentials (RQF) is a regulated and nationally recognised qualification designed for those who have a specific interest or responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to provide basic first aid in emergency situations. Successful candidates will be equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to deal with a range of first aid situations, including: CPR, choking, external bleeding, shock and minor injuries.
