Emergency First Aid at Work (Level Three)


Did you know that an estimated 441,000 workers in Britain sustained an injury at work in 2021/22? 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.

The emergency first aid at work (level three) training course provides learners with the essential skills and knowledge to deal with first aid situations in the workplace.

When an employer's first aid needs assessment identifies that a first aider is not necessary, the minimum requirement is to appoint a person to take charge of first aid arrangements. 

The role of this appointed person includes looking after the first aid equipment and facilities and calling the emergency services when required. They can also provide emergency cover, within their role and competence, where a first aider is absent due to unforeseen circumstances.
