First Aid at Work (FAW) course is designed for workplaces that would be classed as higher risk category (engineering, manufacturing, warehousing, construction, chemicals) and workplaces with a variety of underlying health conditions (heart problems, diabetes anaphylaxis, high blood pressure, etc) or for those organisations that wish to train their staff to a higher level than EFAW and have over 50 employees.
This course has four key outcomes :
- It enables a first-aider to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill while at work. ( EFAW also covers this )
- Equips the first-aider to apply first aid to a range of specific injuries and illnesses. ( EFAW aid does not )
- Employers have identified that a higher level of training is more appropriate to their needs.
- This course is more suitable for high risk workplaces.
