Welcome to your Appointed Persons in the Workplace level 2 course. In this first section we introduce the course and explain how the course works. We talk about the fears of first aid, and when to call the emergency services. You will learn about scene safety, what to do in an emergency when first approaching somebody, and the chain of survival. Finally, we talk about gloves and face masks, the recovery position, and what you will find in a BSi workplace first aid kit.

In this section we begin by giving you an introduction to Adult CPR, which we then look into in more detail. We also look at CPR in the current Coronavirus Covid-19 circumstances. You will learn about heart attacks, drowning and an introduction to AED. Finally, we show you how you can improve both compressions and breaths.

This section covers choking and teaches you how to recognise the signs. We look at the treatment of choking and the differences between complete airway obstruction, and partial airway obstruction.

In this section we cover the different types of bleed. You will learn how to control serious bleeding, and how to deal with someone who has an embedded object. We cover the use of plasters, and other types of injuries that can occur, both major and minor. Finally you will learn about nose bleeds and how to treat them.

In this section you will learn about other medical conditions that you may come into contact with. You will learn about shock, how to deal with fainting, and also allergies and anaphylaxis.
