Highfield Emergency First Aid At Work

This qualification launched on 1st October 2017 and replaced the HABC Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF). 

The objective of this qualification is to support learners in becoming emergency first-aiders in the workplace. The content of the qualification meets the HSE requirements for training emergency first-aiders in those organisations that have identified that staff need to be trained to this level within their first-aid needs assessment.

The qualification covers knowledge such as the roles and responsibilities of the first aider, how to assess an incident and recognising signs and symptoms of injury and illness. The qualification also covers first aid skills in CPR and the use of an AED, providing first aid to a casualty who is choking and dealing with external bleeding and hypovolaemic shock.

In line with the guidance provided by the HSE, the qualification supports/approves workplace first aiders for a period of 3 years, after which point learners will need to retake the course. In addition to this, it is recommended that learners refresh their knowledge annually.
