Cost: £525 + VAT for modules 1 and 2 (for up to 12 delegates) and £350 + VAT for module 3 (for up to 6 delegates), £875 + VAT for the day if completing modules 1, 2 and 3

A three part modular course which offers specialist training for first adiers and those working in environments with specific hazards eg cyanide and hydrofluoric acid.

The course is structured so operators need only attend the morning session (completing modules 1 and 2), although first aiders must attend modules 1, 2, and 3.  

The separate modules allow training to be adapted to any specific hazard including cyanide and hydrofluoric (HF) acid. 

Course overview

Module 1 (limited to 12 delegates comprising first aiders and operators):

  • CoSHH regulations
  • basic risk assessment (chemicals)

Module 2 (limited to 12 delegates comprising first aiders and operators):

  • poisons
  • hydrogen cyanide (HCN) - safety / effects / treatments
  • hydrofluoric acid (HF) -  safety / effects / treatments

NB: Modules 1 and 2 must be retaken every three years

Operators complete a multiple choice paper assessment at the end of module 2. Passing the assessment gives them a specific hazard awareness certificate.

Module 3 (limited to 6 delegates: for first aiders only)

  • CPR
  • oxygen - safety / therapy / bag, mask and oxygen CPR
  • assessment
  • automated external defibrillator (optional)
