Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW)


Where an organisation’s risk assessment of First Aid needs identifies that there is a requirement for Emergency First Aid at Work practitioners, then these national Awards for Emergency First Aid at Work satisfies the requirements of the regulatory body for First Aid - the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

All learners will have the skills and knowledge to provide the organisation with Emergency First Aider’s that can provide treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner.


A range of subjects are covered including:

• Responsibilities and reporting                     • Resuscitation

• Burns                                                           • Assessment of the situation

• Anatomy                                                      • Choking

• Dealing with an unresponsive casualty       • Minor injuries

• Epilepsy                                                       • Basic hygiene in First Aid

• Bleeding control                                          • Shock


A minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities, plus some pre-course activity could be required.


Assessment is on-going by the instructor, along with a multiple choice question paper, and a three year qualification will be issued to those who satisfy the criteria. In addition, the HSE strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of three hours.


A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated on this course and all learners must be a minimum of 14 years of age.
