Benefits of this course:


  • 1.1 million workers in Britain had an accident at work in 2014/2015
  • Of those, 2,700 were from the East Midlands
  • On average, one out of every 370 people received an injury at work
  • The estimated cost of injuries and ill health last year was £15 billion
  • The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.
    This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing adequate first aid training
  • Typically, first aiders will hold a valid certificate in either First Aid at Work (FAW) or Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW)
  • Our QA Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (RQF) - EFAW - training course is the one recommended for first aiders in a low risk workplace
  • Having the correct first aid provision in the workplace is not just a legal requirement, it is incredibly important for the safety of all members of staff!
  • As this is a Regulated Qualification, employers can book this course for their employees in the safe knowledge that they have fulfilled their legal responsibilities for providing quality first aid training, without having to undertake any lengthy due diligence checks

Course Contents


  • What to do if your child goes unconscious
  • How to check if they are breathing normally or not
  • If they are, how to put them in the recovery position
  • If they are not, how to start CPR and use an AED (defibrillator)
  • What to do if your child were to choke
  • What to do if they were to get burnt
  • How to treat minor injuries (dependent on available time)

Past Sessions:


  • Sessions in the past have been paid for by a local charity, enabling parents to access the training for free
  • We're happy to put on sessions for your group, playgroup, charity, or simply for you and your children
  • We're always happy to have little ones come along
  • They can either play around, or join us - they usually prefer to join us and play with the manikins, even trying out CPR!
  • You will, of course, remain fully responsible for them while they are there
