If you find a casualty, who has collapsed and has stopped (or has irregular) breathing, you will need to administer CPR.
Basic CRP and AED is part of the course content of almost all of our First Aid Courses. The Emergency First Aid, First Aid at Work & First Aid Requalification courses will teach you how to preserve life through CPR on a casualty.
A casualty may become unresponsive in various ways, such as from cardiac arrest, a seizure or shock, to name a few. Therefore, CPR is an essential life-saving skill to have.
If someone is bleeding heavily, you must act on this before losing a fatal amount of blood.
The First Aid at Work, First Aid Requalification & Emergency First Aid courses will teach you how to respond to this. You will learn how to apply pressure to a wound effectively and slow the bleeding.
The above first aid courses will not just teach you how to save someone who is choking but recognise the signs in the first place so that you can act quickly.
First aid training can teach you life-saving skills such as; the Heimlich manoeuvere (or abdominal thrusts) and how to apply a back blow correctly.
By treating a burn correctly, you can save yourself or another person from further pain or scarring.
The First Aid Requalification, Emergency First Aid & First Aid at Work courses will teach you how to deal with minor and more severe burns.
Mental health problems can be equally dangerous to a person than physical ill-health.

One of the main ways of deciding which course you should take is by assessing your work environment. Choosing the right training course is especially relevant in a busy working environment.
People generally perceive offices, cafes and small shops as low risk. If you work in a larger store, the risk becomes higher due to increased people working and visiting.
Health & safety personnel would consider workplaces with multiple floors and departments as high risk. They would also class workplaces with operations constantly running through day and night with many workers, and the public present the risks as high.
The difference between emergency first aid and standard first aid is that Emergency First Aid is 1-day of training, whereas First Aid at Work is 3-days.
