What does FAW mean?
FAW stands for First Aid at Work and is a three day, eighteen hour course that provides an accredited certificate in first aid training. It is designed to help employers and employees meet the legal requirements set out in the Health and Safety regulations of 1981, which mandate that workplaces have adequate first aid provision.
Who can benefit from First Aid at Work training?
If you work in a high risk environment such as construction sites, manufacturing plants, or sports facilities, the 3 day FAW course is the recommended choice. It covers a wider range of injuries, illnesses, and emergency situations.
If you work in a smaller, low risk environment such as corporate, retail, education, and low risk sports you may like to consider taking the EFAW course instead.
What is the duration of the First Aid at Work Course?
Our First Aid at Work course is a three day training program that typically lasts eighteen hours.
How many trainees can there be on a course?
Between 4 – 12 trainees per course. Sometimes companies and organisations will have the majority of their trainees take the one day EFAW course and a smaller group complete the three day FAW course.
How do I decide between taking the three day First Aid at Work (FAW) course and the one day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course?
At Nova First Aid training, we offer these accredited first aid courses: the three Day First Aid at Work (FAW) and the one Day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course. Each course is designed to meet the specific needs of different workplaces and industries.
If you work in a high risk environment such as construction sites, manufacturing plants, or sports facilities, the three day FAW course is the recommended choice. This course covers a wider range of injuries, illnesses, and emergency situations, and is ideal for workplaces with larger staff numbers or higher levels of risk.
However, if you work in a low risk environment such as corporate offices, retail stores, low risk sports or educational institutions, the one day EFAW course is the most suitable option for you. This course covers the essential first aid skills and knowledge needed to respond to emergency situations and is accredited by FAIB (UKAS).
Ultimately, the choice between the two courses depends on your workplace's risk level and the specific first aid needs of your employees. We can help you assess your needs and recommend the most appropriate course for you.
Certification and Assessment
Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a HSE recognized certificate, which is valid for three years - it is accredited by the FAIB (UKAS). It confirms that you have the necessary skills and knowledge to act as a qualified first aider in the workplace.
To maintain your first aid skills and keep up to date with any changes in best practices or guidelines, we recommend that you refresh your training regularly. In line with current guidelines, we suggest attending a half day refresher course every 12 months.
By refreshing your skills and knowledge regularly, you can continue to provide the best possible care in emergency situations and ensure the safety and well being of those around you.
Is the First Aid at Work course classed as a Level 2 course?
The Emergency First Aid at Work course is classified as a Level 2 qualification in the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), signifying that it complies with the national standards for first aid vocational training. This level confirms that the course provides the necessary skills and knowledge needed to respond effectively in case of a first aid emergency.
