Course Aims

This 1-day Emergency first aid at work (EFAW) course is suitable for people aged 16+ who might need to provide first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill while at work.

It is ideal for organisations whose first aid needs assessment has identified a requirement for someone to hold a current emergency first aid at work qualification. If your needs assessment identifies a requirement for additional first aid training (e.g. due to having employees with a medical condition), we recommend the 3 day First aid at work course which teaches the skills to recognise and treat a wider range of injuries and medical conditions.

It gives learners the skills and confidence to respond to a range of accidents and first aid emergencies they could encounter in the workplace.
