Refresher course for First Aider in a professional environment | Recyclage du secouriste en milieu professionnel (4h)

Descriptif de la formation

The Belgian Red Cross is approved by SPF Employment, Labor and Social Consultation for organizing the First Aiders refreshing course in accordance with the Code of Well Being at Work of April 28th 2017 (title 5 – First Aid).  

The refreshing course allows first aiders to maintain their basic knowledge and competencies and learn recent and advanced First Aid techniques. The first aider is the first actor in the rescue chain of events in the workplace.

Legal framework:

The refresher takes place on annual basis unless the employer can demonstrate that the annual refresher is not necessary based on a previous risk analysis and the advice of the prevention advisor and the workers committee. In this case, the refresher training can be taken every 2 year.

If a First Aider cannot attend a refresher course, he must attend another one within 12 months of the initially planned training.  If this is not possible, the worker is no longerconsidered having the basic required First Aid knowledge and competencies. He/she will have to retake the complete training in order to qualify as First Aider within the enterprise

Training method: 
Active pedagogy, scenarios, practical and reflective exercises, exchanges and discussions
