FIRST AID

First Aid Courses

First aid is the treatment given for any injury or sudden illness before the arrival of an ambulance, doctor or other qualified person. It is a legal requirement of all employers, including the self-employed to provide first-aiders and adequate and appropriate first aid equipment to their employees.

Categories of First Aiders

As of October 2009, under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 there are 3 categories of First-Aiders:

First-Aider
This person will have attended the 3-day full first aid qualification, or the 2-day requalification course

Emergency First-Aider
This person will have attended the 1-day Emergency First Aid at Work qualification.

Appointed Person
This person will have attended a half-day appointed person course; this is mainly an administrative role.

An employer is required to assess the needs of their business to ensure that they have the right level and number of first-aiders.

Of course the above list doesn’t take into account our Early Years customer, who will also be first-aiders in their own right by taking the Paediatric First Aid qualification to fully meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage or the 1-day Emergency Paediatric First Aid qualification, in order to be included in the staff to child ratio.

First Aid Training Standards

All of our first aid courses are fully up-to-date and meet current best practice including meeting the 2015 Resuscitation Guidelines of the European Resuscitation Council and the Resuscitation Council (UK). These were updated and published on the 15th of October 2015.

You can view the guidelines in full here.

Automated External Defibrillator Qualifications

There is no formal requirement for training on an Automated External Defibrillator however we strongly recommend training. Here at The Training Fox we believe that a little knowledge in life-saving situations goes a long way.

Why Use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)?

The statistics show the risks of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest and why defibrillators are so important, these statistics include:

  • If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, their chance of survival increases from 6% to 74%,
  • Without immediate treatment, 90-95% of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims will die,
  • Based on European data, it is estimated that there are approximately 60,000 Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests (OHCA) occurring every year in the UK,
  • In England alone, the Ambulance Service attempts resuscitation in around 30,000 OHCA cases, annually,
  • Approximately 80% of Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur at home; 20% will occur in public places,
  • 270 children die in the UK every year after suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at school,
  • Only 22% of people in the UK would be confident in performing CPR on a stranger.

Over recent years Automated External Defibrillators (AED) have become more and more apparent in general public areas for example, shopping malls, leisure centres and village halls; these are beginning to help save lives.

In more recent years, cleverly, some old public telephone boxes have been turned into AED boxes, making these life-saving bits of kit even more accessible.

Anaphylaxis Management Courses

Anaphylaxis is a very serious condition caused by a severe and often sudden allergic reaction. It can occur when someone with allergies comes into contact with their allergen; this is known as an allergic reaction. The response to this allergic reaction usually occurs within minutes but can occur 2 or even 3 hours after the reaction.

Do you know the common triggers of Anaphylactic shock?

Would you know the signs if you saw them?

What would you do if someone had the signs and symptoms in front of you?

If you have answered NO to any of those questions, we would encourage you to take a course to learn the answers to these questions as well as what to do for someone who is suffering from anaphylactic shock. Your actions in the immediate aftermath of the reaction can save lives.

Our Anaphylaxis Course Den consists of 2 courses, 1 is the full qualification that will take you through the condition, signs and symptoms and the emergency treatment The other one, will still take you through this, but is designed to be ‘bolted-on’ to an annual refresher qualification, as the course information crosses over, saving training hours in the classroom.

The content of these qualifications are approved by The Anaphylaxis Campaign.

Combined First Aid Courses

Our Awarding Body, Qualsafe Awards, have designed a qualification that combines:

  • QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF), and
  • QA Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF).

The certification of the qualification provides learners with 2 certificates on successful completion of the course, showing their competence in the 2 different First Aid qualifications.

As you will see from the qualification description below, the qualification runs over longer teaching days, allowing the learners plenty of time to develop and expand on their First Aid skills.

Why combine these qualifications?

On their own, these qualifications would take 5 days’ worth of teaching, by combining them learners can achieve these in just 3 days. This therefore saves employers’ staff time away from their important roles and also provides a financial benefit to employers.
The other benefit of this qualification is that learners will gain 2 separate qualifications.

Who can benefit from this qualification?

Employers who need to have both First-Aiders in the Workplace and Paediatric First-Aiders, for example schools, sports clubs, shopping centres and other childcare settings, will all benefit from this qualification.

Community Resilience First Aid Courses

‘The world is a dangerous place,
not because of those who do evil, but because
of those who look on and do nothing.’

Albert Einstein

Over recent years, we have seen an increase in situations that would be described as extreme and needing some extreme First Aid. In such circumstances, it is the general public who make the difference before the medical staff teams are allowed into the environment to help save lives.

Of course, we are talking about terrorist attacks on our Great Britain.

The terrorist attacks that have occurred on our shores recently have been from both extreme Islamic ideology as well as from the far-right wing.

Although, we are discussing terrorism, one thing comes through in each attack, and that is the bravery and quick-thinking of the members of the public, who helped to save so many lives in each attack.

Remember:
Attacks like these are incredibly rare.
However,
we should all remain vigilant and be prepared but not scared

 

This section is dedicated to the memory of all those who lost their lives in these extreme situations.

First Aid at Work Courses

On 1st October 2013, the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 were amended. Under this change the requirement for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to approve first aid training and qualifications was removed. This means that businesses and employers now have a greater flexibility in how they manage their first aid provision in the workplace.

First Aid Needs Assessment

However, under the legislation, employers will still need to undertake a First Aid needs assessment to establish what provision is required. The HSE states that an employer must provide adequate and appropriate first aid equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure that their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. To assist with this we have provided a First Aid Needs Calculator, to support our customers. The assessment will provide you with a report which you can print out to evidence that you have done a first aid needs assessment, we will also be emailed a copy of your report to allow us to contact you regarding your training needs. Our assessment covers all areas the HSE requires you to consider however, should you wish to devise your own needs assessment, it should cover the type of workplace, location, size and number of employees that you have.

First Aid Training Options

If your First Aid Needs’ Assessment highlights that you should have qualified first-aiders, and you need training for this to happen, you will be faced with several options. These are:

  1. Training companies who choose to offer regulated qualifications regulated by qualification regulators e.g. Ofqual,
  2. Those who operate under voluntary approval schemes for example, a trade or industry body having quality assurance schemes accredited by a third party (e.g. UKAS),
  3. Those who operate independently of any such scheme for example, where a training provider chooses to demonstrate their competence to an employer by providing evidence that they meet the criteria set by HSE, OR
  4. From one of the Voluntary Aid Societies e.g. St John Ambulance.

Please note: The HSE does not advocate, promote or support either of the options open to you.

As an independent training company, we have elected to offer regulated qualifications that are regulated by a qualification regulator, in our case we offer Ofqual regulated qualifications accredited by Qualsafe Awards.

The HSE states that employers should select the most suitable option for them, and has produced guidance on how to select an appropriate training provider. In order to comply with their legal duties under the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981, employers must ensure their choice is appropriate and adequate, based on a needs assessment and appropriate due diligence (reasonable investigation) being conducted. The amount of effort you need to put into due diligence will vary for each option. You can view the HSE guidance here.

Due Diligence

The HSE guidance advises on the levels of due diligence that employers may be required to follow. When selecting a training provider, employers should check that the training provider complies with the standards required to teach first aid. The Training Fox are proud of the high standards of teaching we deliver to our learners on every course we deliver. We operate a formal quality assurance system to ensure that you receive high levels of service as well as ensuring that learners receive up-to-date, relevant first aid training, taught by professional instructors to the standards required by the regulations and that meet our FIRST principles.

To assist you with your due diligence checks we have answered the questions contained in the HSE document (Table 1) for evaluating training providers’ competence. Click here for our Due Diligence.

QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (Annual Refresher) (RQF)

Course Aim

Our qualification aims to benefit learners by enabling them to attain the knowledge and practical competencies needed to deal with a range of first aid situations and/or take on the role of a first-aider in the workplace.

Description

Course Aim

Our qualification aim is to support a role in the workplace by giving first aiders a more comprehensive understanding of first aid along with an understanding of how important medical/environmental intelligence is when dealing with a range of casualties.

Description

The content of our Highfield Level 3 Award in First Aid Response qualification meets the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) requirements for training first-aiders and builds on this by allowing learners to identify risks within their place of work and research measures to support these risks within their surrounding environment.

For example, identifying a specific injury that could be catered for by specialist hospitals e.g. burn injuries being sent direct to Burns Centres or eye injuries going direct to Eye Units.

In addition to the above, where specialist equipment is used within the workplace this should be identified and acknowledged within the assessment of this but it will not constitute part of the delivered syllabus.

Youth Organisation’s First Aid Courses

In the UK currently there are nearly 1,000,000 Girl Guides and Boy Scouts attending meetings, activity meetings and camps every year.

Our Youth Organisation Course Den has been designed to aid the achievement of the relevant first aid badges for the 2 youth organisations in the UK:

              • Scout Association, and
              • Girlguiding Association.
Scout Association

The Scout Association is the UK’s mixed youth organisation.

The Beginnings

On August the 1st 1907, 20 boys gathered together on Brownsea Island, near Poole, Dorset for the first experimental camp. The camp was the brainchild of Robert Baden-Powell, better known as BP, a soldier, artist, actor and freethinker. BP was best known for his brave-spirited defence of a small African town called, Mafeking during the Boer War.

By bringing together young people from all walks of life, BP hoped to bring the gaps in society closer, giving young people the opportunity to gain new skills. At the time, it was a radical idea. It has however paved the way for what the Scouts have become! Within 2 years the movement had 100,000 Scouts in the UK alone.

Scout Association Sections

There are 5 sections of the Scout Association:

  • Beavers,
  • Cubs,
  • Scouts,
  • Senior Scouts,
  • Network Scouts.

Girlguiding Association

The Guide Association is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK.

The Beginnings

The Guide Association was formed in 1910, by the founder of the Scout Association, Robert Baden-Powell (BP) following an appearance of a group of girls from Peckham Rye in 1909 at a Boy Scout Rally in Crystal Palace Park. The girls asked BP to let them join in.

What followed was some negative publicity namely in The Spectator magazine, following which BP decided that a separate single-sex organisation would be best. BP asked his sister, Agnes to form a separate Girl Guides organisation and in 1910 The Girl Guides were officially formed.

Later in 1918, BP’s wife Olave became involved in the movement, becoming Chief Guide, later, becoming World Chief Guide in 1930. Olave visited 111 countries in her lifetime, having a major contribution to the Girl Guide movement.
