First aid boxes are provided in all workshops, laboratories, sports halls and Receptions. Report accidents in class immediately to the class lecturer/instructor. Student Services and Reception keep a list of First Aiders. Please report all accidents to Reception, where an accident form must be completed. 
Do not take patients to the First Aider but wait for them to arrive, undertaking necessary assistance, which you feel confident to administer.
First Aid Boxes :
It is the responsibility of the nominated first aiders for the college to check the first aid boxes within their area on a monthly basis. Any additional supplies can be obtained from the Safety, Health and Environment Co-ordinator at Trowbridge. All out of date supplies should be sent to the Safety, Health and Environment Co-ordinator at Trowbridge
Medical Assistance :
The administration and control of medicines and prescription drugs is not a function of College First Aiders. Students requiring help and assistance with medication and/or longer-term supervision because they may be unwell/awaiting parental collection should be referred to Student Services.
Serious accidents :
If there has been a more serious accident where there is a danger in moving the casualty:
  • Phone or contact Reception. If Reception is closed, contact Campus Facilities Staff.
  • Tell them where the accident has happened and give any other details you have.
  • Return to the scene of the accident.
Reception staff or the Site Officer will then call a College First Aider and the emergency services if appropriate.
