media first aid training courses

First Aid on Locations

First Aid on Locations is designed for production teams working away from the office or studio. Whether filming or recording, this course is aimed at groups which will still be able to call for an ambulance but which may experience a delay in it arriving.

The course can be adapted, but the core syllabus meets [and exceeds] the HSEs requirements for workplace first aid.

The core learning outcomes are:

Outline the SAFE approach
Perform, in a simulated setting, basic life support on an adult
Perform, in a simulated setting, basic life support on a child/infant
Demonstrate, in a simulated setting, use of a pocket mask
Demonstrate, in a simulated setting, management of choking
Place a casualty in the recovery position
Outline the management of a casualty with chest pain
State the management steps for a casualty who has fainted
Outline the management of a casualty who is convulsing
Demonstrate, in a simulated setting, use of direct pressure to control bleeding
Demonstrate, in a simulated setting, use of elevation to control bleeding
Outline the management of burns

This first aid on locations course is highly practical and reflects our #trainforreal and “first aid is a contact sport” mantras. Delegates are faced with scenarios involving casualty simulation including fake blood.
