Bespoke training is a challenge we always relish. First Response First Aid have designed and implemented Health and Safety training programmes with many of our customers over the years. These bespoke courses range from very minor changes to standard courses, such as for schools we have added a ‘Paediatric Element’ to the standard HSE approved Emergency First Aid at Work course, to designing a complete three year health and safety training programme for one of the largest employers in the UK.
Example 1: This example is a package First Response First Aid delivers for a company with 5000+ employees of whom include Directors, office staff, cleaners, electricians and plumbers, etc. For this “Triennial Training” package, we provide one day of training per year to all staff on subjects of the clients choice.
The schedule below shows the topics delivered as part of a rolling three year programme. Each course is tailored to the policies and procedures of the organisation, whilst also including what is required by legislation.
Year 1: Basic First Aid, Asbestos Awareness and Occupational Health
Year 2: Manual Handling, Working at Height, Asbestos Awareness and Driving Safely
Year 3: Principles of Risk Assessment, Environmental Awareness, Electrical Safety and Asbestos Awareness
Example 2: This example is a half day first aid course designed specifically for a care organisation who provide homes and services that enable people to enjoy a good later life through independent living. Our client didn’t require fully trained First Aid at Work staff, as they are not solely responsible for the people in their care, however they wanted their staff to have the confidence and basic skills to deal with the most common injuries or illnesses they come across :
Principles of First Aid Company procedure following an accident or sudden illness
Primary Survey Secondary Survey
Recovery positions Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation
Fractures Action to be taken following a fall
Shock Control of Bleeding
Strokes Record keeping
The beauty of a bespoke training package is that you decide what goes into it - no filler and no fluff!
