First Aid at Work comes under the Health and Safety (HSE) Regulations 1981, which are part of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. All employers must provide suitable first-aid equipment, facilities and first aid personnel to enable First Aid to be provided to employees, if they are injured or become ill at work. The enforcing authority for First Aid at work is the HSE (Health & Safety Executive).
Nurseries, crèches, child-minders and similar which come under the responsibility of OFSTED Early Years are usually required to have some staff trained on the two day Paediatric First Aid course.
At One Day Courses we teach a lot of different First Aid Scenarios to the learner which are used to strengthen learning and also practice real-life potential emergencies.
The 2-day Paediatric First Aid Course meets Ofsted requirements for Registered Child-minders and the requirements for Nannies under the DfES Approved Carers Scheme. It can also be used as evidence for employees working towards an NVQ in Childcare and Education.
It is also a great qualification for your portfolio and illustrates that you are interested in your Continuing Professional Development. (CPD)
