Health and Safety & Emergency First Aid Course



Date Posted: December 18, 2018

Northern Ireland Screen will run an Emergency First Aid at Work 1 day course on Monday 14th January (venue tbc). The qualification obtained at the end of this day long course is valid for 3 years.

All film and TV sets require at least one qualified First Aider to be on set. During heavy filming days, particularly when large numbers of crew, cast and extras are present, a greater number of First Aiders are required.  This course provides ‘hands on training’ and will cover things such as dealing with an emergency, electrical incidents, accident recording & reporting and assessing a casualty.

Northern Ireland Screen will also run training for the BECTU Creative Industries Health and Safety Passport on Tuesday 15th January. This is a nationally recognised training course (accredited by IOSH).  This course will teach you:

  • How and why we need safety policies and Risk Assessments.
  • Health & Safety law.
  • How to identify and assess risks and hazards – and how to ‘dynamic’, on-the-job risk assessments yourself.
  • Practical control measures.
  • Accident reporting and how to cope with working at height, electricity, fire, stress, manual handling, lone working etc

No previous industry experience is required but applicants must be 18 yrs or over.  Places are limited and will be awarded on a first come first served basis and completion of our Equality Monitoring Form. Please attach a copy to your email.
