First Aid at Work (FAW)

The 3 day first aid at work (FAW) course is the most extensive course we offer.  The course is most suitable for larger businesses and organisations, and where injuries are common. As each workplace differs in its risk profile, the course delivery is adjusted to highlight specific areas, as appropriate.

Holders of this qualification can act as first-aiders in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. For some basic information on what employers must do to make sure their businesses comply with health and safety law, visit  ‘Health and Safety Made Simple’.
