Emergency First Aid at Work
Knowing what to do in a first aid situation is vitally important. Providing basic first aid and acting promptly could make all the difference to someone who is taken ill or injured.
A one day Emergency First Aid training course is offered by the ISTD in conjunction with our external providers. The course is specially created for people working in low-risk environments and provides delegates with the necessary knowledge and skills needed to act safely and calmly in emergency situations.
This highly successful course has been well attended by a variety of ISTD members and non-members ranging from fully fledged dance teachers to receptionists at dance schools. When we asked participants to describe the most useful aspects of the training they highlighted the importance of taking the opportunity to practice key first aid skills such as CPR and learn the correct first response to common dance injuries such as sprains and fractures. Attendees left the course feeling prepared and confident in their ability to assist in an emergency.
As part of the course, delegates will benefit from hands-on practical training.Delegates are advised to wear comfortable, casual clothes as there is a requirement to sit/kneel on the studio floor for some of the practical exercises.
Our next First Aid session will run on the following date:
It is strongly recommended by the Health & Safety Executive that holders of First Aid certificates attend a refresher course once a year - make sure you're up-to-date
