Frequently Asked Questions
Why has First Aid changed?
Following a review of the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981, the HSE concluded that the regulations should not change, but that within this framework there should be a new training regime for first aiders in the workplace.
What is EFAW?
EFAW stands for Emergency First Aid at Work. This 1-day course has been introduced to satisfy the needs of employers. The new Risk Assessment of First Aid Needs issued by the HSE clearly identifies this qualification. All successful students will be issued with an Emergency First Aid at Work Certificate which is valid for a period of 3 years, along with a wallet-sized plastic card detailing their qualifications.
Is there a requalification?
The qualification is valid for a period of 3 years after which time the Candidate will need to successfully retake the course to gain another 3-year certificate. Also, the HSE strongly recommends that Candidates undertake an annual refresher course.
