Mandatory First Aid at Work courses delivered on Teesside I am able to offer a number of mandatory QCF approved courses, including First Aid at Work (FAW), Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) and Paediatric First Aid from start to finish.  This includes course registration, planning, delivery, assessment and certification.  I am self contained and own all my own professional training equipment.  By keeping my overheads to a minimum, I am able to pass savings on to my customers.  Please contact me on either 01287 622952 or email adrian.beadnell@ntlworld.com for more information.  I am now also able to deliver e-learn ‘blended’ Paediatric First Aid courses.  This training replaces the day two of the traditional 12hr Paediatric First Aid Course and meets the Ofsted Criteria for Early Years.

I was recently ask to talk about First Aid Courses Teesside on BBC Radio Tees.  This represents a small part of this live interview:

First Aid Courses

If an employer has identified that First Aiders are needed in their workplace, they must ensure that those identified undertake training appropriate to both the business and mandatory requirements.  Typically this would be First Aid at Work (FAW) or Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW).

  • EFAW training enables a First Aider to give immediate emergency First Aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill whilst at work.
  • FAW training includes EFAW but also equips the First Aider to apply a greater range of treatments for additional specific injuries and illnesses.
  • Employers may also identify some other level or standard of training that is appropriate to their needs, e.g. Paediatric First Aid as in a School or Nursery.

The findings of a First Aid needs assessment can help employers decide whether their staff should be trained to FAW or EFAW level or to some other appropriate standard. As a rough guide, low hazard workplaces, e.g. an office, normally require EFAW trained First Aiders but higher hazard working environments, e.g. a production factory shop floor, will require full FAW certification. Employers can also use the HSE First aid at work assessment tool which is designed to help them determine the number and type of First Aid cover in their workplace. FAW training courses involve at least 18 hours of training and are run over a minimum of three days. EFAW training courses involve at least six hours of training and are run over a minimum of one day.  Other appropriate training identified by an employer should have a duration that relates to the syllabus content.  The HSE set the syllabus for both FAW and EFAW.
