Emergency First Aid at Work

emergency First Aid at Work

Our Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course is a one day, certificated course delivered at your place of work.

The EFAW training is suitable for the first-aider in low hazard places of work such as in an office or shop with no more than 50 staff. Delegates will learn the first aid skills needed to deal with emergencies until professional help arrives.

If you need a first aider who can also apply first aid to a range of specific illnesses and injuries such as asthma, diabetes or a heart condition, or if you have a workforce of more than 50 staff, our First Aid at Work (FAW) course may be more appropriate.

Qualification: The Emergency First Aid at Work certificate is valid for 3 years.  After that, requalification is required. The HSE also recommends an annual update of first-aid skills.

Today’s health and safety training was a great experience. Neil’s style of teaching is really good. He engaged with the learners at all times and also had a great sense of humour. I definitely feel like I walked away with a lot of information as the session was informative but fun.
