Health and Safety

The duties of a first aider can be physically demanding. It is the responsibility of the client to select suitable candidates to train as first aiders in the workplace. All candidates must be:

  • Physically able to provide casualties with first aid (eg. able to kneel on the floor and administer CPR) in line with the HSE's Approved Code of Practice.
  • Free from any condition that will affect their participation in the course and their capability to carry out the duties of a first aider.
  • Reliable, with the necessary disposition and communication skills.
  • Able to cope with stressful and physically demanding emergency procedures.
  • Easily reachable in the event of an emergency at work.
  • 16 years old or above.

Attendees who are unable to meet the above requirements or fail to meet the pre-set assessment criteria for the course will not be awarded a certificate and will not be able to act as first aiders in the workplace.

Candidates should be free from any pre-existing injuries or conditions which would affect their ability to perform practical assignments. How 2 Save A Life will not be held liable for any injuries sustained by candidates while attending a course.

Requalification

It is the responsibility of the client to ensure that candidates attending a First Aid at Work Requalification course hold proof of a First Aid at Work certificate which is current or has expired no longer than one month before the course start date.

If How 2 Save A Life issues a certificate to a candidate on successful completion of a requalification Course and subsequently finds out that the candidate did not complete the initial First Aid at Work training, the requalification certificate will be invalid, regardless of the success of the candidate at the requalification Course.

On-site Training

If a first aid course is to be held at your own premises, please ensure that there is sufficient space for candidates to be seated comfortably, and enough room for floor-work to be carried out.

Equal Opportunities

How 2 Save A Life has an Equal Opportunities Policy.

To enable How 2 Save A Life to ensure that all candidates are treated fairly, and their requirements are fully met, the client must tell How 2 Save A Life in advance of any special arrangements that an candidate needs in order to enable the candidate to participate fully in the training.

How 2 Save A Life does not provide any specialist equipment and/or personnel such as signers or translators. However these can be sourced at the client's own cost.
