Course Description

Employers have to risk assess their workplace first aid requirements and the 1-day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) qualification is one of the qualifications for this purpose. If the 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.

This agricultural focused Emerfency First AId at Work course is being delivered over 2 half day sessions, in order to fit around the agricultural working day.
