DO MY EMPLOYEES NEED THIS COURSE?
Some companies only require emergency training following a first aid risk assessment – in such cases, our 1-day emergency first aid at work course is sufficient and first aiders only need to receive the EFAW qualification. Depending on the outcome of the assessment, other businesses may need more extensive training for the FAW qualification.
The EFAW 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). Over the course of the emergency first aid training day, 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
