FAW is one of our most in-depth and comprehensive courses. It covers everything in the Emergency First Aid at Work course. However, in addition to the EFAW training, First Aid at Work also includes Recognition and Management of Illness and Injury in the Workplace. For organisations that require additional first aid training, such as those working with people who have a disability or medical condition, this course covers treatment for a variety or injuries and illnesses.
Those who hold a First Aid at Work Certificate can be used as First Aiders in the workplace in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
Further to the EFAW knowledge and skills, those who complete FAW training will be able to recognise, deal with, and treat a range of additional scenarios, including: conducting a head to toe survey, fractures, dislocations, sprains and strains, concussion, cerebral compression, spinal injuries, and major illnesses.
