QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF)

Did you know that an estimated 600,000 workers have an accident at work each year?


The Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable number of first aiders and providing first aid training. However, having the correct first aid provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff.


The QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF) qualification is designed for individuals wishing to act as a first aider in their workplace. Successful candidates will learn how to manage a range of injuries and illnesses that could occur at work and will be equipped with the essential skills needed to give emergency first aid.


What's more, as a regulated qualification, employers can book this course for their employees and rest assured that they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities for providing quality first aid training, without having to undertake any lengthy due diligence checks.


This course can also be offered with a certificated forestry (+F) module, which includes the additional learning required by the Forestry Commission.


A combined First Aid at Work / Paediatric First Aid course, over three extended days, is also available. If successful, candidates on the combined course receive both the QA Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (RQF) and the QA Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid (RQF).
