First Aid Courses 2017

First on the Scene


A customer or one of your staff needs urgent medical assistance - you are the first and possibly the only person there to help.

You've rung 111 and The St John Ambulance is on its way.

Would you know what to do next?

What you do in the next 4 - 12 minutes before the St John Ambulance arrives could save that person's life.

You will be shown how to deal with the most common situations you are likely to encounter in the workplace environment. The aim of this 2 hour workshop is to up-skill staff to complement or assist fully trained first aiders.

Content covered:

  • Adult CPR, (including a demonstration on an AED defibrillator unit)
  • Managing an unconscious patient (who does not require CPR)
  • Best positioning, airway management, environment such as warmth
  • Managing a conscious patient, (who is feeling faint, having difficulty breathing, etc)
  • Dealing with strains, fractures or broken bones due to a slip or fall
  • Dealing with life threatening bleeding
