The way you respond to an accident sustained by someone else can not only reduce the severity of an injury – it can also save their life. It’s therefore absolutely vital to put in place policies and procedures so that accidents can be dealt with as fast and effectively as possible.
In this course, you will begin by looking at first aid equipment, facilities and training required. You will then look at a number of different scenarios involving accidents and injuries, and how you should respond to each of these.
- First aid kits, first aiders and first aid plans
- Electric shocks
- Chemical burns
- Heat exhaustion and dehydration
- Amputation and external bleeding
- Injuries and falls
- Snake bites
Please note: this is an awareness course only and is not a substitute for face-to-face first aid training, or for training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). It is only intended to raise your awareness of how to respond to accidents and injuries.
