Emergency Fist Aid
Being able to apply first aid in an emergency is an essential skill for a professional driver. On the road, accidents and incidents can occur, and first-aid-trained drivers have the power to make a huge difference if they do. From vehicle fires and on-road crashes to drivers losing consciousness or a health condition flaring up, there are a number of issues that drivers may encounter during their career. Here at Driver Hire Uxbridge, we offer an emergency first aid course to ensure that, if your driver is involved in or is at the scene of an accident, they have the skills and confidence to lend a hand – potentially enabling them to save a person’s life.
Emergency first aid training from Driver Hire Uxbridge
This module covers everything your drivers will need to know to make a confident, informed and responsible decision in an emergency situation where first aid is required. The full-day course lasts for seven hours, and counts as an entire day of training that can be used toward the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC). Here are just some of the topics your drivers will learn about (both in theory and practice) on our expert first aid module:
- Introduction to first aid
- Casualty management
- Respiratory problems
- Wounds and bleeding
- Burns and scalds
- Nervous system problems
- Other medical conditions
Our emergency first aid module not only counts toward your drivers’ CPC training – it also gives drivers the opportunity to gain a recognised first aid qualification from the Association of First Aiders, which is valid for three years. As well as ensuring your drivers have the skills to act in an emergency, it enables you to meet regulatory requirements as an employer.
Training that is delivered to your needs
We believe that driver training should be flexible to your needs, which is why we are happy to deliver our course in the way that suits you best. Depending on your needs, this could mean that we conduct our emergency first aid module at your premises. Or, if it’s more convenient for you and your drivers, the module can take place at our purpose-built training facility in Uxbridge. We are happy to train your entire fleet of drivers, or just a single driver from your team.
