Basic first aid training within a professional environment (3 days)

Descriptif de la formation

The Belgian Red Cross is approved by SPF Employment, Labor and Social Consultation to provide the Basic First Aid Training (worker who provides First Aid assistance in the workplace).

In companies classified A,B or C, the employer foresees a sufficient number of nursing staff, first aiders or other designated persons, according to the number of employees, the nature of the company’s activities and the results of the risk analysis. This ensures that First Aid can be provided during the entire working period.

The Basic First Aid Training allows the worker to acquire the required knowledge and competencies to recognize health conditions threatening people’s lives and to provide the appropriate First Aid assistance to a victim of an accident or an illness in the workplace while waiting for the intervention of urgent medical assistance.

This basic training must be supplemented by an additional training based on the company’s activities representing specific risks for which the knowledge and competencies of the basic training are insufficient.
