Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW)

Edenfield » Training » First Aid » Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW)

The Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) qualification is ideal for those working in lower hazard environments (e.g. shops, offices), with smaller teams (i.e. less than 50 people), where HSE guidelines specify staff should be EFAW qualified or where they are supporting colleagues who hold a full First Aid at Work qualification. It is nationally recognised and accredited to RQF level 3 (England, Wales and Northern Ireland) / SQF level 5 (Scotland).

The informative and enjoyable one-day course will equip learners with the skills and confidence to respond to a range of first aid incidents and emergencies.
