Emergency First Aid in Workplace
First Aid is the first point of care often for illness and injury within the workplace until professional medical aid arrives if required. For that reason it is important that appropriate training is undertaken before taking on the responsibility of administering first aid. The Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course is accredited by Lantra Awards who are a nationally recognised Awarding Organisation who ensure the quality and standard of their training meets the requirements of OFQUAL to ensure that the person trained is a competent and safe practitioner.
