Between 2017-2018, there were 555,000 non-fatal injuries in workplaces and 144 fatal injuries.
The British Red Cross found that only 5% of adults have the skills and confidence to provide first aid in emergency situations. This shows how essential Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) can be and just how important it is to equip staff with the correct skills to respond to accidents and emergencies in the workplace.
Our CPD Accredited Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) Refresher Training is the perfect course for all emergency first aiders across all industries. Your staff will refresh their understanding of:

Emergency First Aid at Work Training - Refresher
The Primary Survey The Secondary Survey First Aid Treatment In a first aid situation, your priority is to quickly and calmly assess what’s happened and who needs help. In this section we will cover the primary survey, this is made up of 5 steps, which you can remember using DR ABC, which stands for danger, response, airway, breathing and circulation - we’ll be covering these in this section. Once you have completed your primary survey and dealt with any urgent conditions, you should now assess what is wrong with the casualty. This will include, looking for a medic alert bracelet or medication in their pockets that might tell you about an existing medical condition, as well as asking questions and checking for injuries. In this final section, you will refresh your memory on essential procedures or treatments that you may need to perform to someone at work. You will look at: first aid kits at work, applying roller bandage and slings, choking, shock, cuts/grazes, bruises, nose bleeds, burns/scalds and splinters or other puncture wounds.
