FAW - First Aid at Work

Introduction

HSE (Health and Safety Executive) regulations require businesses to have an appropriate number of First Aiders to treat casualties at work if required.

This First Aid at Work course is suitable for people who work in higher hazard environments such as construction, manufacturing or agriculture.

It is also ideal for organisations whose risk assessment identifies a need for additional first aid training. This could be due to having employees with a disability or an existing medical condition.

Our first aid at work course covers the course content specified in the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

It gives learners the skills and confidence to respond to a range of accidents and first aid emergencies they could encounter in the workplace.

In addition to the topics covered on an Emergency First Aid at Work course, this course covers treatment for a variety of injuries and medical conditions.
