Emergency First Aid at Work is designed and ideally suited for low-risk workplaces where it is identified that the staff should have appropriate first aid skills and knowledge. EFAW empowers a first aider to provide emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes unwell/ill whilst at work. Emergency First Aid at Work can also be used for staff required to be emergency first aiders or to assist a designated first aider trained through the First Aid at Work course.

Emergency First Aid at Work course will enable you to meet your regulatory obligations if your risk assessment identifies that first aid training just covering emergency protocols are sufficient for your workplace. The course is delivered under the guidance of our specialist First Aid at Work trainers. Our approved trainers use the modern training techniques to maximise learner’s ability to remember and improve confidence.

We also deliver Emergency First Aid at Work training for schools, colleges and for other business which have group bookings and would like to provide training at their workplace.

For schools and colleges this course can be combined with Anaphylaxis and Asthma to give students first-hand knowledge and information and enable them how to deal with them in an emergency.
