What Are the Responsibilities of First Aiders?
First aiders get their name because they are the first to respond to an evolving medical situation.
They are trained in practical skills needed to care for a casualty until they can be stabilized for transport.
Every workplace must have a designated first aider who can provide life-saving care during medical incidents. Some of their important roles include:
- Performing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in the event of a heart attack and cardiac arrest
- Use Automated External Defibrillators (AED)
- Casualty observation (vital signs, risk Assessment, and needs assessment)
- Preventing blood loss from injuries
- Placing stable patients in the Recovery Position until help arrives
- First aid (paediatric) for children
- Manage the mental health and illness of patients until higher-trained personnel can arrive
A first aider can be anyone!
Successful candidates who undergo First Aid at Work courses have the knowledge and the temperament for dealing with a casualty and are always eager to help and support others.
When their training is completed, they have the resources to respond to incidents for the next three years.

Depending on the type of course, failing may mean not passing a final exam or not completing certain tasks during the duration of the class. It is important for participants to pay close attention during the course.
Yes, e-learning and online first aid training are considered acceptable. In fact, the UK Resuscitation Council (UKRC) fully supports online first aid learning as an effective teaching method
The UKRC recommends that organisations who wish to teach first aid should use blended learning methods, which include face-to-face instruction and online learning. This ensures the best understanding of first aid knowledge and skills, while also allowing people to participate in training at their own pace and convenience
Online first aid courses provide a cost-effective way for organisations to offer staff training without needing to arrange an instructor or classroom space. It also allows course members more freedom to learn when it suits them, and to make use of the most up-to-date digital resources
However, it is important to remember that online first aid courses are no substitute for practical instruction in a real-life setting. For this reason, it is recommended that organisations combine both online learning with hands-on experience to ensure that their staff are properly equipped with the right skills and knowledge.
In an emergency situation, quick and efficient help is crucial in order to provide proper treatment for minor injuries. Birmingham First Aid Courses teaches important techniques such as bandaging cuts and bruises, and how to treat burns with ice. Compression and CPR are also covered in depth, as well as the use of an AED. Additionally, the course covers emergency procedures for choking, poison, bites and stings. Learning how to properly deal with an unconscious person or someone having a seizure is also important. It’s also important to learn how to recognise and respond to injuries of the head, neck, back, arm and leg.
First aid courses are an important aspect of education in schools. They provide teachers and other educators with the necessary tools and knowledge to respond to emergencies and provide initial care for injuries. The content of the program is designed to meet the needs of the community and is constantly updated to reflect the latest research and best practices in the field. The curriculum includes a variety of activities and simulations, as well as opportunities for hands-on training. These courses are not just limited to schools but also offered to the families and community members, providing them with the knowledge and tools they need to respond to emergencies in their own environment. The use of technology such as videos and online resources help make the content accessible to families and parents. With the number of opportunities to learn first aid increasing, it’s important for educators and parents to take advantage of these resources to ensure the safety and well-being of their communities.
