CAS training – Health and Safety, First Aid courses

These courses can help you meet legal requirements to ensure the Health and Safety of your staff and clients.

Our portfolio of courses includes:

Paediatric First Aid (2 days)
The Government has proposed that from 1 September 2016, all newly qualified early years staff working in EYFS provision must also hold a current Paediatric First Aid (PFA) or emergency PFA certificate to be included in the required staff:child ratios in an early years setting. Childcare providers will be allowed a three month ‘grace’ period to complete the PFA training after starting with a new employer (Department of Education 2016).

Emergency First Aid at Work (1 day)
The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed. (HSE website Aug 2017)

Complete First Aid (2 days)
Unique opportunity for you to complete your training in both Paediatric First Aid (PFA) and Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW), as above, at the same time. Successful candidates will learn the roles and responsibilities of the Paediatric First Aider and Emergency First Aider. You will be equipped with the necessary skills to administer safe and effective treatment when dealing with a range of paediatric and adult first aid situations.

Health and Safety
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 requires you to provide whatever information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of your employees. This is expanded by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, which identify situations where health and safety training is particularly important, e.g. when people start work, on exposure to new or increased risks and where existing skills may have become rusty or need updating.

Fire Safety and awareness
You are responsible for fire safety in business or other non-domestic premises if you’re an employer, the owner, the landlord, an occupier or anyone else with control of the premises (e.g. facilities manager, building manager, managing agent or risk assessor). You are known as the ‘responsible person’. If there’s more than one responsible person, you have to work together to meet your responsibilities. The Fire Safety Order also applies if you have paying guests, for example if you run a bed and breakfast, guesthouse or let a self-catering property.
