QA Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF)

Summary

Did you know that an estimated 629,000 workers in Britain had an accident at work in 2013/14?

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.

This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate first aid training. However, having the correct first aid provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff!
