Construction workers are typically classed as working in a high hazard workplace, where there is a risk of serious fractures, crush injuries, amputations and traumatic bleeding. It is for this reason that they take the Level 3 First Aid at Work qualification which covers all emergency and non-emergency situations that might arise on site.
This course is suitable for site managers, contractors and labourers who are involved working on busy building sites / projects. It is fully recognised by the HSE, through the First Aid Industry Body (FAIB).
The Level 3 First Aid at Work course is covered over two days plus an e-learning module. This meets HSE requirements and covers construction workers to deliver first aid on-site as and when required.
The total learning time is 18 hours, whereby 12 hours is face-to-face and the remaining 6 hours is completed via an online study module that can be completed on a smartphone, computer or tablet.
Train Aid offers this course on a monthly basis in Islington, London and in-house to groups across the UK. Please check below for upcoming dates:
