The Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course is one of the statutory qualifications for this purpose. The content meets the criteria for staff that may be faced with life-threatening incidents where they have to manage the casualty for a short time until emergency services arrive or very minor incidents that will not require medical assistance. As a minimum, a low-risk workplace such as a small office should have a first-aid box and a person appointed to take charge of first-aid arrangements, such as calling the emergency services if necessary. Employers must provide information about first-aid arrangements to their employees.
This Emergency First Aid at Work (RQF) Level 3 Award qualification is designed for individuals who wish to act as an emergency first aider in their workplace.
We can deliver the 1 Day Emergency First Aid at Work course directly in your workplace, reducing your costs for staff travel and reducing time out of the business. The group cost to deliver this course for 6 – 10 delegates direct in your workplace is only £425.00 + Vat.
