If an employer has identified that first aider’s are needed in their workplace, they must ensure that those identified to be first aiders undertake training appropriate to the need, typically this may be first aid at work (FAW) or emergency first aid at work (EFAW):
- Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) training enables a first-aider to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill while at work.
- First Aid at Work (FAW) training includes EFAW and also equips the first-aider to apply first aid to a range of specific injuries and illnesses.
Employers may also identify some other level or standard of training that is appropriate to their needs.
The Emergency First Aid at work Training course is covered over 6 hours (normally during 1 day). It provides an excellent introduction to the basic principles of first aid and gives you control of a first aid situation in the workplace.
The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing appropriate first aid training.
