EFR HSE First Aid At Work Provider GB

Emergency First Response

The Emergency First Response First Aid at Work (Great Britain) course is customised to UK Resuscitation Council basic life support protocols and nationally accepted first aid protocols and is based upon the instructor led delivery of the Emergency First Response Primary Care and Secondary Care modules instructor digital lesson guides. Modules on Caring for Specific Illnesses and Injuries, and First Aid in the Workplace compliment these. The course has its own materials including participant and instructor manuals, and benefits from the use of the existing Emergency First Response Primary Care and Secondary Care video.

Our approach to first aid training builds your confidence to provide care when there is a medical emergency and confidence is everything when a true emergency is at hand. We do this by teaching Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation and first aid skills in a non-stressful learning environment and providing more hands-on skill practice time. More practice time means better skill retention, which gives you the confidence to respond in the event of a medical emergency.
