In light of the ongoing pandemic this 1.5-hour instructor-led course will equip first aiders with the up to date information and procedures on Covid-19 for First Aiders.
On the 9th May of this year, the government, in conjunction with Health and Safety Authority (HSA), the Health Services Executive (HSE) and the Department of Health and the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation published a “Return to Work Safely Protocol”. This protocol provides guidance to employers to help safeguard their workers when returning to the workplace.
This protocol advises:
“Workers with a specific role in acting as first responders should be provided with updated training on infection prevention and control principles including performance of hand hygiene and appropriate use of personal protective equipment when delivering first aid”
The Return to Work Safely Protocol is designed to support employers and workers to put measures in place that will prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace when the economy begins to slowly open up, following the temporary closure of most businesses during the worst phase of the current pandemic. (Gov.ie 2020)
The aim of this course is to provide employees with the knowledge and skills that will be required to prevent the spread and protect them from COVID-19 that could circulating within the workplace. It will ensure that they are provided with updated training on infection prevention and control principles, including performance of hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene, social distancing and appropriate use of personal protective equipment when at risk in compliance with the Return to Work Safely Protocol, 2020.
