The employer has to provide, as a minimum, an appointed person who is responsible for Emergency First Aid at all times when employees are at work. An Emergency First Aider is a person provided by the employer to take care of a situation (e.g. to call an ambulance) if a serious injury/illness occurs in the absence of a First Aider. An Emergency First Aider is also responsible for First Aid equipment in the absence of a First Aider.
This course is designed for the person or persons who have been appointed by their company to cover in the absence of the First Aider. It is ideal for smaller workplaces that present few health and safety risks, where a nominated or appointed person is required to take charge in the event of an illness or accident. The course provides the basic knowledge of First Aid, to deal with emergencies in the workplace.
