First Aid at Work (FAW)

First Aid at Work (FAW)

First Aid provision at work is mandatory.  The level of provision is based on a first aid needs  assessment. The Health and Safety Executive website provides guidance on how to do this. The HSE also specifies the syllabus to be covered on this 3-day/18hr course.

The certificate is valid for 3yrs. However, please note that from Oct 2009 new guidelines from HSE strongly recommend annual FAW refresher training (see FAW Refresher courses below) as representing best practice.

Please note that schools need FAW for providing first aid cover to staff and other adults on the premises.  However, they also need paediatric first aid to treat children under puberty.  AETP will be pleased to advise on this aspect of First Aid provision at your school.

Training will be to October 2010 Resuscitation Council Guidelines.

[Please also note that under revised First aid at Work guidelines, HSE ‘strongly recommends that first aiders undertake annual refresher training’]
