The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) certified course has replaced the QQI certified ‘Occupational First Aid’ course.
First Aid is the initial assistance or treatment given to someone who is injured or suddenly taken ill.
The Health, Safety and Welfare Act at Work (General Application) Regulations place a general duty on employers to make first aid provision for employees in the case of injury or illness at the workplace
Employers have a duty to provide first aid equipment at all places of work where working conditions require it. PHECC Certified First-aiders are also required to be trained and certified as competent at least once every two years by a recognised PHECC first aid instructor.
