ITC Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid At Work (1 day)

This is a one day training course & is suitable for employers who have identified a requirement for Emergency First Aiders at Work in their First Aid Needs Assessment.

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees should they be injured or become ill at work. These regulations apply to all workplaces including those with five or fewer employees and the self-employed.

More information on HSE Guidance can be found at

Employers have to risk assess their workplace first aid requirements and the 1-day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) qualification is one of the statutory qualifications for this purpose.

If the risk assessment indicates that employees may be faced with life-threatening incidents where they have to manage the casualty for up to 10 minutes, or deal with very minor incidents that will not require medical assistance, then the EFAW is the course that meets this need.

The focus of this course is on preventing situations from becoming worse and learning the vital life-saving skills that a trained Emergency First Aider can use until help arrives.

Our instructors deliver dynamic courses that relate the subjects being taught to real life situations, which makes our training more applicable to your first aiders.

Areas Covered

  • Acting safely, promptly and effectively in an emergency
  • Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
  • Treating an unconscious casualty (including seizure)
  • Wounds and bleeding
  • Shock

Assessment and Certification
