First Aid Responder

PHECC First Aid Response

The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) now recognises the PHECC First-Aid Response (FAR) training course as meeting the needs of occupational first-aid.

The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) an independent statutory body who set the standards for education and training for pre-hospital emergency care in Ireland, developed the FAR STANDARD

The First-Aid Response course covers all of the occupational first-aid requirements for places of work as outlined by the Health and Safety Authority. Under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007, there is a requirement on employers, based on a risk assessment, to have a sufficient number of adequately trained first-aiders in the workplace.
