First aid training
How do you ensure the safety of workers on your premises? The answer is simple - train them in health and safety. First aid is the most important health and safety topic, which is why it is already addressed in the initial training. If you want your employees to be best trained in first aid, choose a course at KURSO.
The focus of the training is on the appropriate transfer of first aid knowledge.
These are the issues that will be covered in the theoretical part of the course:
- legal issues;
- contents of the medical kit;
- familiarise yourself with the instructions on how to properly report an accident and secure the scene;
- principles of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in adults and children;
- evacuation of casualties;
- placing the casualty in the safe side position;
- dressing instructions for fractures, frostbite, amputation, bleeding, head, abdominal and thoracic injuries;
- dealing with electrocution or lightning, fainting, poisoning, epileptic seizures and heart attacks.
In addition to the theoretical part, it is extremely important to look at the subject of first aid in a practical way. Classes in this area may include the following topics:
- principles for dealing with traffic accidents;
- practising the safe side position;
- performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a dummy - cardiac massage and rescue breaths ('mouth-to-mouth' ventilation technique);
- CPR for epileptic seizures, choking or electrocution;
- appropriate selection of casualties and organising their evacuation;
- management of suspected spinal injury - application of a cervical collar.
The topics given above are examples and can be enriched with topics related to potential hazards at specific workplaces for a particular company.
What does the law say about first aid?
Every employer must appoint a person responsible for first aid under Article 209 of the Labour Code. Such an employee is also tasked with operating the first-aid kit when an accident occurs. The first aid system at the workplace should be operational and easily accessible to everyone. Where there is work involving a risk of accident or contact with toxic substances, medical points should be organised. Adequate knowledge of first aid issues allows for quick and effective assistance in the event of an emergency. This is why it is best for employers to provide employees with training in this area. This way, they acquire knowledge in both theory and practice.
