C-19 First Aid Responder Guidelines



COVID-19 First Aid Responder Guidelines: In the event that first aid is required in the workplace it may not be possible to maintain a distance of 2 metres. Workers with a specific role in acting as first responders should be provided with updated training on infection prevention and control principles including performance of hand hygiene and appropriate use of personal protective equipment when delivering first aid. This training course has been developed to meet the additional training requirements of First Aid Responders to meet requirements of the Return to Work Safely Protocol.

Further advice on first aid is available from the Pre Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC).
