Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) is designed for low-risk workplaces. It can also be used for staff required to be emergency first aiders or to support a designated first aider trained via the First Aid at Work course
It is one of the most popular courses that allows you to perform the duties of a first aider in the workplace. This course covers all the requirements stipulated by the Health and Safety at Work Act (First Aid) Regulations 1981 to make any one a qualified emergency first aider, if your first aid risk assessment deems this a requirement for your company or organisation.
Alongside meeting these obligations, staff will also be equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence to handle a wide range of emergency situations – from minor injuries to life-threatening conditions. Staff will be able to administer the right treatment swiftly and decisively during a crucial emergency moment where every second counts
This course is a relaxed and non-stressful learning environment. I aim to make the course as practical as possible and thus, help you gain confidence in providing aid in a work or home environment.
