Electroplating First Aider Level 1, Basic Course

This course is a basic level 1 course providing basic knowledge in acid alkali accidents (within the scope of the IVR guidelines).
In the refresher course, which is recommended annually, the course is further developed and deepened.


Target group:

  • that control various work rooms within their control function
  • whose duties include providing first aid
  • who have a “remote” workplace
  • who often work in abroad in countries with poor medical emergency services
  •  who have shift work


Education and training of company emergency workers who, thanks to the immediate availability of life-saving measures, can bridge the time between the occurrence of an incident and the arrival of medical personnel.

The course covers the correct behaviour in emergencies, with unconscious and responsive patients.

The trainee emergency responders learn to recognise the signs of a breathing disorder and to give artificial respiration. They learn to deal with external bleeding and recognise the signs of a state of shock. They recognise cardiac arrest, learn how to perform cardiac massage and how to use a defibrillator (AED). 

The participants know the theoretical dangers of hydrofluoric and hydrocyanic acid, as well as the correct procedure in the event of an incident. They will be able to initiate first aid measures for burns to the eyes, skin, after inhalation and ingestion.

They are also shown the immediate measures to be taken in case of burns and electrical accidents.
