The Emergency First Aid at Work course is suitable for anyone who wishes to become a qualified first aider in the workplace. It is also suitable for individuals who want to gain a basic understanding of first aid and who want to gain the confidence to administer it in emergency situations.
The course follows the recommendations of the HSE but we can tailor make the course to suit individual group requirements. This course is 6 hours long and will give candidates the EFAW certificate which lasts for 3 years.
This course is very practical and we use scenarios to re-inforce the learning which empowers candidates to act in first aid emergencies. The instructors have much experience in real life first emergencies and bring this knowledge to the classroom. There will be plenty of time for questions and answers.
The Emergency First Aid at Work course covers the following topics:
- Responsibilities of the first aider in the workplace
- Priorities of treatment
- Primary assessment
- Secondary assessment
- Resuscitation techniques
- Heart attack
- Airway obstruction
- Basic fractures
- Asthma, Epilepsy, Diabetes
If you are interested in learning an even further understanding of first aid then you should consider the 3 day First Aid at Work (FAW) course. This is a recognised qualification that is recommended for people in positions of responsibility.
