Employers have to risk assess their workplace first aid requirements and the 3-day First Aid at Work (FAW) qualification is one of the statutory qualifications for this purpose.
If the risk assessment indicates that employees may be faced with life-threatening incidents or where they might have to manage illness, injury, poisoning or burns then the FAW is the first aid at work course that meets this need.
Topics include; roles & responsibilities, dealing with collapse (with and without breathing), choking, bleeding, shock, seizures, minor workplace incidents, major illnesses, common and serious workplace injuries, poisoning, anaphylactic shock, burns treatment, eye injuries and using first aid kit.
Typical delivery methods are predominantly practical and the first aid course is assessed by continual observation of candidate performance and three brief Multiple Choice Questionnaires.
