Physical resources and site agreements
Centres can use specially designated areas within a centre to assess a learner, where the use of particular equipment is required, for example, using a resuscitation mannequin. The equipment and materials must meet industry standards and be capable of being used under normal working conditions to allow a learner to demonstrate their ability to act safely, promptly and effectively when an emergency occurs at work.
Centres should teach the first-aid management of injuries and illness, in relation to the topics covered in the qualification, in accordance with:
- current guidelines published by the Resuscitation Council (UK); and
- the current edition of the first-aid manual of the Voluntary Aid Societies, such as St John Ambulance; or
- other published guidelines, provided they are in line with the two above or supported by a responsible body of medical opinion.
- An appropriate manikin based on the age of resuscitation taught
- Triangular bandage
- Adhesive dressing
- Roller bandage.
