Emergency First Aid at Work
The Emergency First Aid at Work qualification is considered the national standard for first aid training and covers most working environments.

It is a requirement of Health & Safety law that all employers provide their staff with a safe environment to work in. During your risk assessment, if it highlights a need for qualified first aiders, this national Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) will satisfy the requirements as set by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).
This is an in depth and comprehensive 1 day first aid course that will cover a broad range of first aid scenarios and emergencies. This will teach all participants to deal with emergency situations as the arise with confidence in a fast, safe and effective way.
By attending this course, you will gain a nationally recognised Emergency First Aid at Work qualification that will be valid for 3 years from the date you train which will exceed the statutory requirements of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
You will be assessed throughout the day during practical scenarios, but this is not a stressful examination process. If you are not confident with a particular technique or topic that we cover, we will go over these areas in further detail until everyone is satisfied, including us. You will have ample opportunity to discuss all topics as we move through the day. The course is completed with a short theory assessment to ensure all learning outcomes and competency have been achieved.
