COURSE OVERVIEW

This course is designed for current First Aiders who need their First Aid at Work renewed before the 3-year expiry date.

 


ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

This course is for candidates who currently hold a First Aid at Work qualification which is being renewed before the 3-year expiry date.

 


 

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.

 


COURSE CONTENT/SYLLABUS

 

The FAW training syllabus covers some important general first aid topics, including:

  • Understand the role and responsibilities of the first aider
  • Recording and reporting of accidents and incidents including RIDDOR
  • Discussion of specific work-related injuries
  • Contents of a first aid kit (including preventing cross-infection)
  • Assessing the situation and acting safely, effectively and promptly in an emergency

 

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
  • Choking
  • Shock
  • Wounds and bleeding
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Fractures
  • Strokes
  • Anaphylactic shock
  • Heart attacks and angina
  • Asthma
  • Unconscious colleagues
  • Sudden poisoning
  • Eye injuries
  • Injuries to bones, muscles and joints including suspected spinal injuries
