What Are the Responsibilities of Emergency First Aiders?
An emergency designated first aider is responsible for maintaining the health and safety of a workspace that’s not used to needing medical help. These include offices, schools, and other places where injuries are uncommon. Here are some of the common responsibilities that the first aider of this type must handle: Unresponsive patients with heart problems Giving casualty care to stop furious bleeding Stop choking (Heimlich Maneuver) Aid workmates undergoing seizures Treating burns and electrical accidents Casualty reporting Because of the lower chances of encountering an injured patient, this type of First Aid at Work course is much shorter than a traditional first aid course, which lasts about four days. Successful candidates who complete such a course are oriented toward workplace-specific injuries and treatment. This means knowing how to stop bleeding incidents, treat burns, and conduct cardiopulmonary resuscitation. A first aid practitioner with this kind of responsibility needs to have mental health to be able to transition from an office-mate to being able to provide comprehensive first aid at work. They need to be able to reach for the aid kit, stabilize the casualty and prepare them for the eventual move to the hospital. They must also be aware of a workmate’s potentially life-threatening illness.

- Mobile eTicket
This HSE approved 1 day course will provide theoretical and practical training in basic life saving first aid. At the end of the course, delegates will be trained to act as an Emergency First Aider in their workplace.
Every employer, even those with fewer than 5 employees, must carry out an assessment of the risk in their workplace and must decide what level of first aid provision they must provide. Issues to consider could include the type of work activities taking place, what possible injuries might occur, the size and layout of the workplace, and the proximity to emergency services. Consideration must also be given to making sure that there is a sufficient number of trained personnel to cover absences such as sickness and annual leave.
All delegates are assessed and on passing, receive a certificate which is valid for 3 years.
The event will finish at approximately 4.30pm and delegates will be offered a light sandwich lunch.

Women in their 30s are on average £4,000 a year worse off than they were in 2010, new figures show.
Data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows the median full-time salary for those aged 30 to 39 has dropped from £37,899 in April 2010 to £33,740 in April 2023 - leaving them, on average, £4,159 a year and £350 a month worse off in real terms.
The calculation was made using the Consumer Price Index measure of inflation, which tracks the average change in prices paid by consumers over a period of time for a basket of goods and services.
The Labour Party blamed the figures on "stagnant wages, low growth and a lack of interest in supporting women staying in, or re-entering, the workforce".
Read the full story here:
The "rabbit out the hat" in Jeremy Hunt's autumn statement was a two percentage point cut in national insurance.
This means the national insurance rate paid by 27 million people will drop from 12% to 10% from January.
The chancellor said that for someone on the average salary of £35,000, this cut will save them more than £450.
But how much will it save you?

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has revealed his autumn statement.
Among the proposals, national insurance is to be cut by two percentage points, and NI payments for the self-employed have been abolished. There have also been increases to Universal Credit and the state pension.
But the chancellor also announced new tougher measures for job seekers, saying those who fail to find work after 18 months of "intensive support" will be given mandatory work placements.
Those who do not engage with the process for six months will lose their benefits altogether.
On the Sky News Daily, host Niall Paterson sits down with Ed Conway , our economics and data editor, and Sam Coates , our deputy political editor, to analyse the chancellor's statement and what it means.
Home Secretary James Cleverly has been accused of calling the town of Stockton-on-Tees a "s***hole" in the Commons.
A source close to him denied this but admitted he called the area's Labour MP "s***".
The debacle comes weeks after reports he called the government's Rwanda policy "bats***".
Unparliamentary language is defined as anything that "breaks the rules of politeness of the House of Commons chamber".
While MPs are disciplined for swearing during debates, convention also bans them from calling their colleagues liars or accusing them of being drunk, among other things.
Traditionally, some have used euphemisms to get around the rules - most famously Sir Winston Churchill when he said someone had told a "terminological exactitude" instead of a lie.
When politicians use words deemed unparliamentary, the speaker will either ask them to withdraw them, or if they refuse, leave the chamber.
So what are the rules on unparliamentary language - and which MPs have broken them?
Sky News takes a look below:
In January this year, Rishi Sunak made five pledges for voters to judge him on.
The prime minister has met one of these so far - halving inflation by the end of the year.
One thing to bear in mind is prior to him making the inflation pledge, most economists predicted it would drop to 5% anyway.
Sky News has developed a tool to track the government's progress in delivering these pledges - and you can see the progress for yourself below.
In the wake of the chancellor delivering his autumn statement, the experts on our Data and Forensics team have updated our poll tracker with the latest surveys.
The tracker aggregates various surveys to give an indication of how voters feel about different political parties.
Labour is sitting on an average of 44.9%, with the Tories on 24.8% - a roughly 20-point lead.
That means the Tories have seen a slight bump from the measures announced by Jeremy Hunt - but they remain a long way behind.
In third are the Lib Dems on 10.7%, followed by Reform on around 7.8% and the Greens on 6.0% - with the SNP on 3.3%.
See the latest update below - and you can read more about the methodology behind the tracker here .
As we reported this morning, the new foreign secretary is spending a second day in the Middle East.
After meeting with the Israeli prime minister and president yesterday, Lord David Cameron has travelled to the city of Ramallah in the West Bank to hold talks with the Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas.
The discussions were focused on alleviating the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, as well as looking towards a "long-term political solution to the crisis".
The UK has today announced that it is doubling its aid for Palestinians civilians, providing an extra £30m that the foreign secretary has said will be spent on "vital aid such as shelter and medical provisions".

Although Sir Keir Starmer is not doing any media today, some details from an interview he has done have emerged.
The Labour leader sat down with Classic FM and he was asked to pick a piece of music that "sums up the Labour Party".
In response, Sir Keir picked Ode to Joy - which happens to be the EU anthem.
He said: "You've got the orchestra, you've got the voices, you've got this big combination. This is very sort of Labour.
"You're getting everybody, Beethoven's getting everybody on to the stage for this."
He went on: "I talk about a national mission for the next Labour government. This is a sense of something. It has got a sense of destiny and is hugely optimistic.
"And so for me, that's been hardwired in me for a long, long time. So I would go with that."
He added: "There are many others that I could associate with the Labour Party, but it’s that sense of moving forward to a better place, is incredibly powerful."
The Labour leader has said clearly that his party would not take the UK back into the EU's single market or customs union, but has hinted at closer relations with the bloc, particularly around tackling illegal migration.
Sir Keir is a former junior scholar at Guildhall who played the flute, piano and violin as a child.
He has previously said listening to Beethoven more generally helps him deal with the strains of work, describing classical music as a "great release" for him.
Reform UK leader Richard Tice has refused to rule out Nigel Farage becoming the next leader of his party.
Mr Tice, who succeeded Mr Farage in March 2021, admitted the "more help Nigel can give, the better".
He was asked about the fate of the former UKIP leader by Sophy Ridge on the Politics Hub as Mr Farage appears on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! in Australia.
According to Mr Tice, people are enjoying seeing "Nigel the individual" because he is "revealing his personality".
"I hope he goes all the way in the programme," he added.
Asked whether Mr Farage could make a comeback to lead Reform - formerly the Brexit Party - he replied: "I'm the leader, he's made it very clear he doesn't want to stand in a first-past-the-post election.
Pressed again on whether that could mean Mr Farage taking over, Mr Tice said: "Let's wait and see."

Jeremy Hunt's autumn statement tax cut has fuelled speculation Rishi Sunak could be gearing up for an election in the first half of 2024.
With the Tories still lagging behind Labour in the polls, the chancellor made the surprise announcement that he will slash national insurance by two percentage points, and bring forward the change to January rather than waiting until the new tax year in April.
Some Conservative MPs think the move suggests Downing Street wants to be in a strong position to send voters to polling stations next May or June, rather than waiting for autumn, as had previously been thought.
UK general elections have to be held no more than five years apart, so the next one must take place by January 28 2025 at the latest - as that is five years from the day the current parliament first met (December 17 2019), plus the time required to run an election campaign.
However, the prime minister could choose to go earlier than that, and will likely call one if and when he sees an advantage in doing so.
But will that be spring, autumn, or could he hold on until the bitter end?
