Emergency First Aid at work. (1 day)

If a business risk assessment indicates that employees may be faced with life-threatening incidents where they have to manage the casualty for up to 10 minutes, or deal with very minor incidents that will not require medical assistance, then the EFAW is the course that meets this need.

Topics include; roles & responsibilities, assessing incidents, dealing with collapse (with and without breathing), choking, bleeding, shock, seizures, minor workplace incidents, using first aid kit.

This qualification is designed to provide essential life saving skills. Typical delivery methods are predominantly practical and the course is assessed by continual observation of candidate performance.

Successful completion will result in candidates gaining ITC Emergency First Aid at Work certificate with a valid (licence to practice) lifetime of 3 years from date of completion.

The qualification is revalidated by attending another EFAW course after 3 years.
