First Aid training reduces the risk of accidents occurring and improves the confidence of employees to handle emergency situations if they happen.
An accident is a traumatic experience for both the patient and those attending to them. Remember, your employees are not nurses with every day triage experience; they are only first aiders that hope they never need to use their training.
It is recommended that a nominated first aider has the Level 3 qualification; however, this level 2 certificate can provide your employees with basic skills to underpin your businesses preparation for an emergency.
First aiders with the level 2 qualification can:
- begin first response immediately, whilst waiting for the advanced first aider to arrive (especially on large sites)
- manage the situation effectively, reducing panic and confusion by understanding what is happening
- effectively provide support to the nominated first aider through a demanding situation
appreciate their working environment to help reduce accidents occurring
- save lives
