Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW)

Course Introduction

This Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course is for those who wish to become a First Aider in the workplace for the purposes of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. This course covers primary care skills, and so is ideal for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that there is no requirement for a fully trained First Aider for their workplace.

If you require a fully comprehensive course, or work in a high risk setting then our 3 day First Aid at Work course may be better suited.
