Appointed Persons (1/2 day course) 65   

When an employer's First-aid Needs Assessment identifies that a first-aider is not necessary, the minimum requirement is to appoint a person to take charge of first-aid arrangements. The role of this appointed person includes looking after the first-aid equipment and facilities and calling the emergency services when required. They can also provide emergency cover, within their role and competence, where a first-aider is absent due to unforeseen circumstances (annual leave does not count).

An appointed person should be available at all times people are at work on site - this may mean appointing more than one.  Appointed persons should only give first aid for which they have been trained. This would realistically include scene assessment, personal protective barriers (use of gloves and face masks) together with Primary Care (immediate life threatening events: no breathing, no heartbeat, severe bleeding etc).

This Appointed Person at Work / First Responder course exceeds the basic HSE requirements and includes the recommended primary care element.
