What is a First Aid At Work Course?

The three-day FAW course is our most thorough first aid course. It is approved by the Health and Safety Executive and meets the requirements of the First Aid at Work regulations (1981).

This comprehensive course will not only teach you the basics of first aid in the workplace, but also train you in advanced techniques such as the use of an automated defibrillator. It is designed for you if you are a nominated first aider in a hazardous environment, such as a factoryor a construction site, as well as providing you with complete training for any other work situation.

As an employer, this Health and Safety Executive approved course will not only help you to meet your obligations under the First Aid at Work (1981) regulations, but also ensure that your staff, customers and visitors are well protected and provided for.

This training is if important you work in an environment where the nature of the business or the type of equipment used puts staff at increased risk, for example:

  • Manufacturing
  • Chemical industries
  • Construction sites
  • Energy companies
  • Colleges and universities

You should choose the three-day First Aid at Work course if you work in more hazardous environments, or if you would like a more in-depth understanding of first aid knowledge and techniques.

It is also ideal for you if you want to expand your first aid skills and receive a certified HSE approved qualification.

It will give you the skills you need to take care of the patient until qualified support, such as paramedics, arrives and the patient can be transferred to hospital.

You will also learn how to complete the mandatory paperwork required for formerly reporting an accident under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations(RIDDOR)2013.

  • Formal reporting of accidents and incidents
  • CPR
  • The priorities of first aid, including the 4 B’s
  • Wounds and serious bleeding
  • Automated defibrillator (AED) training
  • Recognising anaphylaxis and asthma
  • Treating the unconscious patient
  • Shock
  • Broken bones and soft tissue injuries
  • Burns and scalds
  • Compression
  • Concussion
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Poisoning


How long is the course?

The course takes place over three days, with six hours of training per day between 9.00am and 4.15pm. However, the start time can be varied, by agreement, to suit staff schedules and shift patterns.


What level is the First Aid At Work Course?

The 3 day first aid course is typically a Level 3 qualification, which is suitable for individuals who are designated as first aiders in the workplace


Is there an assessment?

You will be continually assessed throughout the three days to ensure you have understood each part of the course before we move on.

To achieve HSE approved certification, you must also pass a formal assessment on completion of the course.


Do you receive certification?

Following a satisfactory final assessment, you will be awarded an HSE recognised certificate


How long does the certificate last?

It is valid for three years even if you change employer during that time.


How often should the training be carried out?
