Kimberley Leisure Centre is closed to the public, but still delivering COVID-secure workplace training during this lockdown. As training cannot be completed from home, the government guidelines allow for employees to leave home for specific work purposes, including maintaining their first aid qualifications. We have conducted a risk assessment for the venue and put the following aspects into place:
- Enrolments have been reduced from 12 to 6 people per course.
- The training room is ventilated with windows open. It is advisable to bring additional layers to stay warm.
- Individual hand sanitiser is available for each candidate. Regular hand-washing encouraged after each practical session.
- Face coverings are compulsory (please bring your own).
- Gloves are provided for the practical sessions.
- Rigorous cleaning protocols in place for manikins.

Where an organisation’s risk assessment of First Aid needs identifies that there is a requirement for Emergency First Aid at Work practitioners, then this National Award in Emergency First Aid at Work satisfies the requirements of the regulatory body for First Aid – the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
All learners will have the skills and knowledge to provide the organisation with Emergency First Aider’s that can provide treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner.
A minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities, plus some pre-course activity could be required.
A range of subjects are covered including:
- Responsibilities and reporting

- Assessment of the situation
- Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
- Minor injuries
- Basic hygiene in First Aid
- Bleeding control
Practical assessment is on-going by the instructor, and a three year qualification will be issued to those who satisfy the criteria. In addition, the HSE strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of three hours.
A maximum of 6 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment.
A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role.
