Oxygen Administration

Oxygen Administration – 4 hours

Organisations who have oxygen on site for first aid treatment, will require to have personnel trained in the administration of oxygen, as this is not taught on a first aid course.  This course will help the employer to fulfil its duty under the HSE’s Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations.

The course is designed for qualified first aiders who are expected to administer oxygen as a form of treatment, prior to the arrival of the emergency services.

Learning outcome

At the conclusion of this course, all of the qualified first aiders should be confident in deciding who to give oxygen to and to whom they should not.  They will also be able to administer the oxygen in the correct manner.
