    About the Course

The first looks at the general role of the first aid appointed person; what their duties are, how to use an accident book, and the items that should be available in the organisation’s first aid box. The second section focuses on what this role means in an emergency. It offers guidance for how to communicate with the emergency services and what information you can gather to help them.
