FIRST AID AT WORK COURSE

COURSE OVERVIEW

The First Aid at Work (3 Day) course is a UK qualification, often used and referred to as the standard for workplace first aid training, in particular for medium and high risk workplaces. Employers assess the needs of their workplace to determine the appropriate level of training and number of first aiders they require.

The course is comprised of the Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) modules. The First Aid at Work training Course includes the 1 Day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) syllabus and also equips the First Aider to apply first aid to a range of specific injuries and illnesses with an emphasis on the workplace.

In addition to first aid and CPR training, this course also includes automated external defibrillator (AED) training. AED´s can increase a cardiac arrest victims chance of survival by up to 50-75%. AED´s are becoming more readily available while being incredibly safe and easy to use.

This First Aid at Work Course is internationally accredited, notably by the International Liason Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR), the European Resuscitation Council (ERC), the British Resuscitation Council (BRC) and adheres to the latest guidelines laid out by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).
