If you need your employees to be trained in first aid for the workplace and receive a Level 3 First Aid at Work (FAW) qualification, then this three-day course is perfect for you. The training for the FAW qualification covers emergency first aid skills, non-life threatening illnesses and injuries, and workplace health and safety regulations, going beyond the material covered in the EFAW course.

There are no requirements for this first aid at work training course.
DO MY EMPLOYEES NEED THIS COURSE?
Your employees need the full FAW qualification if the outcome of your first aid risk assessment determines that you require first aiders with more than emergency first aid skills. For less risky business environments, you may only need your first aiders to have received the EFAW qualification.
The Level 3 FAW training syllabus covers some important general first aid topics, including:
- What are the roles and responsibilities of the first aider?
- How should incidents be recorded and reported using a Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) form?
- What should a first aid kit contain?
- In a first aid emergency, how should you assess the situation and respond?
The course will also educate employees on how to handle a wide range of specific work-related situations, as well as teaching them cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for adults, children, and babies. Over the course of the three days, they will be taught how to deal with:
- Minor cuts, grazes, splinters, and burns
- Wounds and bleeding
- Anaphylactic shock
- Heart attacks and angina
- Unconscious colleagues
- Sudden poisoning
- Eye injuries
- Injuries to bones, muscles and joints including suspected spinal injuries
- Chest injuries
