Who is the course for:

This course is designed for company employees who work in low-risk environments like shops and offices which have immediate access to emergency services.

Employers must ensure appropriate measures are in place if someone is taken ill or a workplace accident or injury occurs.

This does not need not be complicated and complex. The first aid provision should be ‘adequate and appropriate in the circumstances’. In a low-risk setting, it may be as simple as a first aid kit and an appointed person who is EFAW qualified and also to call emergency services. In higher risk settings, you need to appoint at least one trained first aider.
