First aid training in the workplace has become increasingly important over the last few decades. While your business might seem like a safe place to work, accidents, illness and injury can happen even in the most tranquil of environments.
Dovewell Training is a Qualsafe approved provider of first aid training courses in the North West. Based in Skelmersdale, we focus on providing training that supports organisations ranging from law firms to the construction sector.
We also work with individuals who are unemployed and want to obtain industry-recognized qualifications that improve their job prospects.
First Aid Courses from Dovewell Training in Birkdale
We provide accredited first aid training that is suitable for complete novices as well as those looking to refresh or update their skills. We provide various Qualsafe accredited courses:
Level 3 First Aid at Work in Birkdale
This 3 day course will provide you or one of your employees with a solid understanding of First Aid and what to do in various scenarios. Successful completion of this course will allow the attendee to be nominated as a workplace First Aider.
Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work in Birkdale
If one of your employees or someone who is visiting your place of work is injured or taken ill, health and safety regulations mean you should provide them with immediate attention. It is much easier to do this if one or more of your staff have had first aid training.
This course is nationally recognized and covers important skills such as how to manage an unresponsive patient, what to do if someone is choking, how to administer CPR and how to deal with wounds and cuts.
Level 3 Paediatric First Aid in Birkdale
If you are providing early years schooling, then you will need to have at least one person working in your business who has passed a paediatric first aid course. This course is aimed at businesses such as nurseries and individual childminders as well as parents and grandparents who want to learn basic first aid skills.
In addition to standard first aid, this course provides skills development in child-specific issues such as how to deal with meningitis, asthma and how to quickly assess an emergency.
Level 2 Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator
If a life-threatening situation occurs in your business or at home, having the skills and knowledge to save an injured or ill person is invaluable. While you wait for an ambulance to arrive, immediate action can often mean the difference between life and death.
An AED or automated external defibrillator is a portable device that can be used to diagnose cardiac problems and issue life-saving shocks to get the heart beating again. Some 30,000 people suffer from a cardiac arrest outside of a hospital environment each year and getting quick treatment is critical.
This course is aimed at individuals from all backgrounds and includes general first aid and life-saving skills as well as how to use an AED on children and adults and how to combine it with CPR.
