Generally, first aid at work training only demonstrates the procedures to carry out in the event of loss of breathing or circulation, bleeding, broken bones, asthma, stroke, etc. The syllabus may mention chemicals, but usually in the context of ingestion or burns to the skin; very little is taught about first aid following other chemical exposures.
NCEC’s First Aid for Chemical Exposures course can help you provide that vital first aid in the event of an incident involving chemicals.
This one-day training course comprises the following modules:
The course also includes some hands-on exercises to develop your skills and understanding, and improve your confidence in making a response.
The First Aid for Chemical Exposures course is aimed at those who use chemicals or work in an environment where chemicals are handled and would like a better understanding of the type of first aid that can be performed following a chemical exposure. It is an obvious add-on for those who are already first aid at work (FAW) qualified.
