Contents of the ERO course day

Experience a special day and step into another world, which can become reality on your own work floor.

You learn about and work with the various types of personal protective equipment that are essential for a first responder. This includes, for example, gloves, a safety vest, and a safety helmet. We emphasize the importance of using these equipment correctly to protect yourself during an emergency situation.

You receive training in basic first aid techniques, including life-saving measures such as wound treatment, recognizing symptoms, and prioritizing victims. Additionally, you learn how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) during resuscitation.

Here you learn how to use various types of materials and dressings from a trauma kit to control severe bleeding. This includes properly applying a tourniquet and using hemostatic dressings, among others. These skills are crucial in providing first aid for life-threatening bleeding.

In following America’s example,  NedCert initiated the national campaign “Stop the bleed” in 2015 to raise awareness among everyone that they should immediately control a bleeding as it can save lives.

You learn about fire prevention and firefighting techniques. This includes understanding different fire classes and the use of fire extinguishers such as water, carbon dioxide, foam/powder, and fire blankets. The goal is to familiarize yourself with effectively and safely fighting incipient fires.

Here you learn how to act quickly and effectively in accidents to minimize further damage. This includes assessing the situation, taking appropriate precautions, and providing assistance to victims until professional help arrives.

You learn how to conduct a swift and organized evacuation in case of an emergency. This includes knowing and understanding evacuation procedures, effectively alerting others, and guiding people to a safe location.

During this exercise, you apply the learned evacuation methods in a realistic scenario. This allows you to test and, if necessary, improve your response skills.

You learn how to communicate effectively during an emergency. This includes using communication devices such as phones and radios to transmit information quickly and clearly. Additionally, you will be taught how and when to contact emergency services and what essential information to relay.

The abbreviation BHV/ERO can mean 3 things:

  • Company emergency response officer
  • Citizen assistance provider
  • Basic assistance provider

In the Netherlands, emergency assistance is mandatory. In Curaçao, an increasing number of companies and organizations see the need to be prepared for calamities and incidents. In-house emergency response has been proven to play an important role in saving lives, as it involves people (in-house emergency responders) who know the buildings where they work better than other emergency responders such as the police or fire brigade.

Yes, our BHV / ERO certificate is valid for 2 years!
This means that the Emergency Response Officer only has to attend an ERO day after 2 years.

Of course it is good to practice a few times every year, such as an evacuation drill, but that must be done at your company. You must, however, be able to demonstrate that you have competent ERO’s and that is possible with an official NedCert certificate.

It depends, among other things, on the size of the company and the risks that exist in a company, how many Emergency Response Officers there must be. Click here for the NedCert online calculation tool to calculate the approximate number of Emergency Response Officers.

If you are an Emergency Response Officer (BHV), you must prevent and limit injury and damage to colleagues and guests as much as possible in a dangerous situation. You have a number of tasks.

The duties of an emergency response officer are:

providing first aid in the event of accidents and limiting the consequences of accidents;
limiting and fighting fire;
alarm and evacuate employees and other persons in the building in emergency situations.

Calling in for outside help

If you, as an emergency response officer, cannot (any longer) cope with the fire or accident, the employer must ensure that help is called in from outside the company. The fire brigade or other emergency services can be alerted.
