Course Overview

Between 2017-2018, there were 555,000 non-fatal injuries in workplaces and 144 fatal injuries.

The British Red Cross determined that only 5% of adults have the skills and confidence to provide first aid in emergency situations. This displays how crucial Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) can be. It also shows just how important it is to equip staff with the necessary skills to respond to accidents and emergencies in the workplace.

Our CPD Accredited Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) Refresher Training is the perfect course for all emergency first aiders across all industries. Your staff will refresh their understanding of:

  • the role of an emergency first aider, such as the need for recording incidents and preventing cross-infection
  • how to assess a situation to act safely and effectively in an emergency
  • how to administer first aid to those who are; unconscious, choking, burned, wounded, bleeding, or suffering from shock
  • how to administer CPR and how to use an AED
  • how to provide first aid for minor injuries (cuts, grazes, bruises, minor burns, etc.)

Please note that this online training course does not give you the full practical training of first aid or emergency first aid. It provides general awareness but should not be used as a replacement for practical training.
