Mensura will work with your internal department for protection and prevention to help prevent occupational illnesses and accidents. However, it is never possible to fully eliminate workplace accidents and health issues. Therefore, it is crucial to have certified first-aid staff available at all times who know how to use first-aid equipment while waiting for emergency services to arrive.
The law stipulates that companies must have an adequate number of trained first aiders available on their premises. The exact number is determined based on the number of employees and the company’s risk level.
First-aid workers must hold a current certificate from an accredited training centre. This certificate is obtained upon successful completion of a basic first-aid training course.
Mensura is accredited by the Federal Public Service for Employment, Labour, and Social Dialogue to offer this course.
In addition to the theory part, the course provides ample opportunity for practical training. Participants learn how to apply bandages and tourniquets, practice CPR on life-size dummies, transport victims, etc. The course may also include wound care, with common techniques being practiced on fake wounds.
Company-specific risks are discussed prior to training to ensure that the content of the course addresses your needs.
Refresher training: Emergency response officer (first aid)
Participants who successfully complete the basic first aid training course will become fully certified first-aid workers. However, to maintain efficiency of emergency response operations, regular refresher training is an absolute must.
Each of your staff members with a first-aid certificate is legally required to complete annual refresher training and must be able to produce their valid certificate. Mensura is accredited by the Federal Public Service for Employment, Labour, and Social Dialogue to provide this refresher course.
