HABC Award in First Aid at Work Level 2
This 3 day First aid at Work qualification is suitable for anyone responsible for assessing, and dealing with, accidents or emergencies within the workplace.
The first aid qualification is a requirement for anyone who wants to be the nominated First Aider in their workplace. Only once a risk assessment has been carried out can it be determined how many employees require first aid training or if a qualified First Aider is needed.
The First aid at Work qualification is only valid for 3 years. The first aid qualification can be renewed by sitting a refresher course.
The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees if they are injured or become ill at work. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with five or fewer employees and to the self-employed.
What is 'adequate and appropriate' provision?The minimum legal requirement is to have an 'appointed person' (AP) to take charge of first aid arrangements in the workplace. This person does not have to be a trained and qualified emergency first-aider or first-aider, although many employers regard this as best practice.
To become an emergency first-aider the minimum level of first aid training you need is the Emergency First Aid at Work qualification.
Employers must carry out an assessment of first aid training needs to determine whether an AP is adequate or whether they need to provide a person who has undergone the three-day First Aid at Work course
