First Aid at Work (On-Site)

Introduction  

The First Aid at Work (FAW) is the highest and most widely recognised first aid qualification. It is suitable for workplaces where risk assessments identify the need for highly trained first aiders due to the size of the organisation or workplace, nature of the business or the groups of individuals considered.

 

The comprehensive and in-depth course will be delivered in a friendly and relaxed way, and will enable learners to respond to an extensive range of first aid incidents and emergencies.

 

It will also provide fundamental details on the legalities of first aid and the responsibilities of employers.
