First Aid: Kit and Training


First Aid

At one time or another we all have cause to administer some first aid. Even if its just a plaster on a small cut a little basic first aid knowledge can really help the effectiveness of any treatment given. For bigger problems it is best to leave for specially trained people to assess and recommend action (most workplaces have a trained first aiders)

First Aid Kit

Health and safety now require workplaces to have a HSE compliant first aid kit available.

First Aid Training



Training is essential and when completed the chance to join a First Aid team is available.

The SH&E office is looking for volunteers to train and join our First Aid Team. The 'First Aid at Work' training certificate concentrates on a wide range of scenarios so that dedicated staff can react confidentially in the event of a first aid situation. Topics covered are:-
  • How to act in the event of an emergency
  • CPR ( cardio-pulmonary resuscitation )
  • Unconscious casualty
  • Wounds & bleeding
  • Burns & scalds
  • Injuries to bones, muscles and joint
  • .......................and many more.

The course will last for 3 days (19th, 20th & 21st October), after which there will be a short assessment. It is hoped that Certified First Aiders will join our dedicated team to provide their First Aid services to the University site. First Aid equipment, including kit bags and radios, will be provided.

Basic first aid training involves learning to stop wounds from bleeding, expelling items that are being choked on, splinting injured limbs, clearing fluid from breathing channels removing splinters and more. While basic first aid may be rather simple, it is actually much like any other technical or scientific discipline.

Sometimes I don't think people realize how important a basic first aid kit is until they have kids. Then all of a sudden they don't just need band aides, but they are having to pull out the disinfectant and gauze bandages because their son biffed it on his bike...if you couldn't tell I was talking from personal experience. "Nitrile gloves" is right though, if the injury is bad enough you definitely want to leave that to medically trained personnel.
