Provide risk-based primary emergency care/first aid in the workplace Unit Std 120496
The purpose of the unit standard is to demonstrate an integrated practical and theoretical grounding in basic first aid, thus ensuring that the learner is able to cope with emergency situations, while also improving earning capacity of professional drivers in the transport sector. The contribution to the national skills development strategy is the key developmental interface between learners and new competencies to be achieved.
Competence achieved in National Certificates and provides building blocks towards NQF level 4 qualifications, and the inclusion of first aid contributes to learner development beyond simply the requirements for professional driving.
Learners who master the applied competence described in this unit standard will contribute to the development of a professional community of transport employees who are able to competently ensure appropriate first aid procedures in emergencies.
