The British Red Cross is one of the UK's leading first aid training providers offering first aid courses for the workplace. In the UK alone, we:

  • train over 150,000 people in first aid every year
  • provide first aid training in over 180 venues
  • have over 30 years experience in delivering workplace first aid courses.

The Emergency First Aid at Work course will enable you to understand the role of the first-aider, including
reference to:
––the importance of preventing cross-infection;
––the need for recording incidents and actions;
––use of available equipment;
––assess the situation and circumstances in order
to act safely, promptly and effectively in an
emergency;
––administer first aid to a casualty who is
unconscious (including seizure);
––administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation;
––administer first aid to a casualty who is choking;
––administer first aid to a casualty who is wounded
and bleeding;
––administer first aid to a casualty who is suffering
from shock;
––provide appropriate first aid for minor injuries
(including small cuts, grazes and bruises, minor
burns and scalds, small splinters).

Evidence underpinning this approach

Certificate issued in line with HSE guidance valid for 3 years

Training organisations should teach the first-aid management of injuries and illness, in relation to the topics covered in EFAW training courses in accordance with:

  1. current guidelines published by the Resuscitation Council (UK); and
  2. the current edition of the first-aid manual of the Voluntary Aid Societies (British Red Cross St Andrew’s First Ai,d St John Ambulance ); or
  3. other published guidelines, provided they are in line with the two above or supported by a responsible body of medical opinion.

Where your first-aid needs assessment identifies, or where you choose to use qualifications other than FAW or EFAW to demonstrate workplace first-aid competence, you should ensure that common elements of the syllabus are taught in accordance with the same guidelines.
