What is emergency first aid awareness?

Emergency first aid awareness is about knowing how to help someone who is hurt or very sick until doctors or paramedics can arrive. It includes learning things like how to check if the area is safe, how to do CPR (chest compressions and rescue breathing) to help someone whose heart has stopped, how to stop severe bleeding, and how to care for wounds.

It also covers recognizing and giving basic help for problems like heart attacks, strokes, allergies, seizures, and diabetic emergencies. You can learn about emergency first aid by taking classes, watching videos, or reading simple guides. Remember, though, that it’s always important to call for professional medical help when someone is seriously hurt or sick.

What is the difference between emergency first aid and first aid at work?

The difference between Emergency First Aid and First Aid at Work lies in the scope and depth of the training. Emergency First Aid focuses on basic life-saving skills and immediate response to emergencies, while First Aid at Work provides comprehensive training for workplace-specific injuries and illnesses, along with more advanced first aid techniques.

First Aid at Work is intended for individuals who have a designated responsibility for providing first aid in the workplace and requires a more extensive training course.

How long does emergency first aid at work last?

Emergency first aid at work can last for a few hours up to one or two days. Some courses are shorter and cover basic knowledge and skills, like CPR, stopping bleeding, and helping with choking.

These courses may take just a few hours. Other courses are longer, usually lasting one to two days. They cover more topics and go into more detail about first aid in the workplace.

It’s important to practice and refresh your skills regularly to stay prepared. Some rules may require you to take the training again every so often to make sure you still know what to do in an emergency.
