Training at your Workplace

As well as training locations across the country, we can deliver on-site training at your workplace for a group of delegates. The cost of the 1 day emergency first aid at work course would be £545. For this costing the group size can be any number of staff trained from 2 to 12. If you wish to train more than 12 delegates on a course, please contact us for a quote.

The advantages of training at your workplace is that you can select a day of your choice and there is flexibility regarding any preferred start time for the training.

Why is Emergency First Aid At Work training important?

The training equips employees with the skills and knowledge to provide initial emergency care in the event of an injury or illness in the workplace. This helps to ensure that prompt and appropriate action is taken to minimise the impact of an injury or illness, and can potentially save lives. 

Having trained first aiders on site can also help to create a safer working environment and promote a culture of health and safety in the workplace. 

Additionally, employers have a legal obligation to provide adequate first aid provision in the workplace, and the course is designed to enable employers to meet their first aid obligations under current health and safety laws, creating a safe environment of work for employees.

Who should take Emergency First Aid At Work training?

This course is designed for appointed first aiders in low-risk workplaces, such as offices and retail establishments where there are small numbers of staff, typically between 25 and 50 workers.

Low-risk environments with more than 50 workers should consider the 3-day First Aid at Work course.

Can anybody take an Emergency First Aid course?

There are no prerequisites for attending an emergency first aid at work course. The course is open to all employees over the age of 16 who are physically able to perform the required and assessed tasks, including resuscitation.

Special provisions can be made for delegates with certain physical disabilities or learning difficulties, to enable them to play an active role in first aid provision. 

Please discuss your needs with our training team who will advise on whether this is possible, and if it is, create a bespoke training plan to accommodate the specific needs of these candidates.

How long does the training last?

The emergency first aid at work course comprises 6 hours of guided learning, usually delivered in a single day. Open courses generally run from 9 am to 4.15 pm, however, in-house training can be delivered at different times to suit your shift patterns or peak work periods.

Is there an assessment?

To qualify for the emergency first aid at work qualification, candidates must attend all parts of the course and demonstrate competency in a number of first aid procedures. The course is continually assessed throughout the day to ensure appropriate learning and skill development and each candidate must be able to show their understanding of the following first aid procedures:

  • The recovery position – for unresponsive casualties who are breathing normally
  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) – for unresponsive casualties who are not breathing normally
  • Treatment of external bleeding for a casualty in shock.

How often should the training be carried out?

Though there is no specific EFAW refresher course, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends that first aid skills and knowledge be updated and refreshed annually. At CE Safety, we offer an annual half day emergency first aid at work refresher course designed to update and refresh the skills and knowledge of individuals who have previously completed first aid at work training courses.

Are emergency health and safety at work courses approved by the HSE?

The HSE did approve all emergency first aid at work courses up until 2013, however, since then they then stopped approving the courses. The HSE do recognise this emergency first aid at work course, and your certification on completion of the course will be valid for three years.
