First Aid at Work – Group Lesson

Group Lesson – 16 training hours (2 days) – Our First Aid at Work onsite training course is designed for companies who would like to bring medical emergency response to the company’s scale of operations. During this course, students will learn how to work in a team to activate an emergency action plan. This course integrates Primary care and Secondary care with more advanced skills such as artificial ventilation (pocket mask, BVM), oxygen therapy, immobilization and transportation techniques (stretcher, spinal board)… Drills will be organised in your facility to test the capacity of your safety team to respond. We will work with you to develop a Medical Emergency Action Plan (MEAP) according to the specificity of your company. This MEAP can be added to your general safety plan and will be a guide for your safety team to follow standards and professional procedures in case of medical emergency situations.
