Appointed Persons

Would you know how to cope with a medical Emergency? Every day people die needlessly in the UK – when basic first aid would have saved their lives…… Would you know what to do?

Course information

When an employer’s first-aid needs assessment indicates that a first-aider is unnecessary, the minimum requirement is to appoint a person to take charge of first-aid arrangements. The roles of this appointed person include looking after the first-aid equipment and facilities and calling the emergency services when required. They can also provide emergency cover, within their role and competence, where a first aider is absent due to unforeseen circumstances. This course provides the basic requirements to fullfill this role.
