First Aid Training for Golden Boy Drivers back to articles

As part of our on going Driver CPC training, our members of staff recently attended a first aid course held by the British Red Cross. The course concentrated on the following situations when first aid is required…

  • Unconscious casualties (cardiopulmonary resuscitation and recovery position)
  • Monitoring a casualty (secondary survey)
  • Choking
  • Shock
  • Bleeding and bandaging (cuts to limbs, object in a wound)
  • Minor bleeding (splinters, minor cuts, nosebleed)
  • Burns
  • Fractures, dislocations, strains and sprains
  • Spinal injury (including jaw thrust)
  • Poisoning
  • Seizures

The course finished with our staff members receiving a qualification in emergency first aid at work, which is valid for three years.
