First Aid at Work (FAW) is the ideal course for anyone looking to gain the comprehensive skills required to become a confident first aider in the work place. Through intensive practical training in real life scenarios, the three day programme will provide you with the knowledge and insight to deal with first aid emergencies should they occur in your place of work.

The course can be specially engineered to ensure that the content is completely relevant to the audience we are working with and to cater to the requirements and bespoke needs of your workplace. In line with all of our courses, the FAW course is designed to equip you with the highest standard of certified skills gained through theory and applied training to manage possible future first aid situations that could arise in your work place.

In order for an employer to decide whether his staff require a three day FAW qualification or an EFAW qualification (1 day course) they must consider their staff numbers and risks according to their working environment.

Tailor your FAW Course

The FAW course can be specifically tailored to your unique operating environment, please speak to us to discuss your requirements further.

Some examples of popular options that we offer are as follows:

The First Aid at Work qualification can be chosen in conjunction with that of AED (Defibrillator) training for those workplaces who have, or intend to have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on site. The EFAW course occurs much as normal, with our instructors then including the relevant knowledge and skills to enable the participants to confidently demonstrate correct use of an AED within a resuscitation scenario. The benefit of tying these courses together when booking means you save time spent in training and money – our clients usually find it creates a better, more focused educational experience for their team. For further details of our AED course please click here.

The FAW course can be adapted to train employees working with schools or educational environments. The focus of the course is altered to focus on the educational environment, the course duration is extended by an hour to allow for expanded content which includes:

The FAW + Forestry course is tailored to provide emergency first aid training to individuals working within a forestry environment. We have a wealth of experience in this area having trained many forestry workers including the staff working for the Forestry Commission Wales with excellent feedback, therefore you can be sure that if you decide to let us handle your training you will be receiving the best quality service.

A First Aid at Work course that is tailored specifically for those involved in sport, professionally or in recreation. Our team are all operational medics and have extensive experience in dealing with a wide range of sporting incidents – for one client alone we have provided over 1800 pitch side treatments in recent years! While the course covers the HSE required syllabus and duration we are then able to include relevant topics and skills that will compliment your general first aid training, this can include; additional focus on head, spine and neck injury, sports taping, sports injury management, minor injuries including cuts, grazes and blisters, additional focus on soft and hard tissue issues. This extra information can be available as a few extra hours or as a full day’s activity – we can also modulise this course to coincide with weekly training sessions for sports clubs.

As one of the UK’s more risky industries we are happy to spend more time with your team covering those additional first aid skills that might be needed due to the working environment. In addition to the main syllabus we spend additional time on the subjects that we, or your risk assessments, feel would greatly benefit the safety of your staff. Whether its specifically including practical’s demonstrating how to treat concrete dust in the eyes, electrocution, crush injury or common injuries to hands we can ensure your staff are much better prepared.

The FAW for drivers takes the Emergency First Aid at Work course and adapts it to provide training for individuals involved in driving for a living, the course takes into account particular scenarios and risks that they may come across over and above that of a standard working environment.
