Why do I need Emergency First Aid at Work Training?

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations require that an employer provide suitable arrangements for rendering First Aid to persons injured at work.

Depending on the perceived risks associated with the business and the availability of qualified assistance, persons should be either FAW (First Aid at Work) or as a minimum EFAW (Emergency First Aid at Work) trained.

This is both a fun and practical course which will involve delegates getting fully into the role of an emergency first aider at work person. This will also prepare them for those little emergencies at home which will give your delegates the confidence to deal with these incidents as well.

This course is accredited by the HSE & covers the essential knowledge that is needed for the role of "EFAW" person.

  • Render Emergency First Aid to an injured person until medical assistance is available
