Ways to Learn

What is Emergency First Aid at Work Training?

Emergency first aid training covers the essentials of first aid through a variety of theoretical input and practical demonstrations. 

Our one-day course will help organisations like yours meet their regulatory requirements if your risk assessment states that emergency first aid training is sufficient for your workplace.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and practice first aid procedures applicable to adults, babies and children and can be adapted to any work situation.

*Rated 4.8 out of 5 by learners on Coursecheck, TSW Training has been a trusted and established training provider of choice for 56 years.

Who is this Course For?

This course is ideally suited for individuals over the age of 16 working in, or managing a team, in all environments. It is specifically designed for nominated first aiders that work in small, lower risk workplaces.

For regulatory purposes, successfully completing an EFAW course will enable the delegate to act as a workplace first-aider.
