For workplaces that are looking for First Aid Training in Suffolk, there are normally two types of First Aid course, the one-day Emergency First Aid course or theThree-day first aid at work course.

However some workplaces require further training for their staff owing to additional risks that staff can face, for example the Forestry Commission require staff to have completed a Forestry First Aid Course.

This is usually a one day first aid course or a three-day first aid course with a special module attached to the course called Forestry + F, this together forms the forestry first aid course for more information on the Forestry + F Course click here.

For information on First Aid for Schools there are two types of course, the Combined First Aid at Work and Paediatric First Aid Course  or the blended Paediatric First Aid Course.

 What is a One day EFAW Course?

The one-day Emergency First Aid at Work course is for those that need the minimum training, to briefly manage an emergency in the first few minutes until the arrival of expert help, appropriate workplaces for the one-day Emergency First Aid course or what is known as a EFAW include workplaces and shops.

I have done the 1 Day EFAW Course, now what?

The Health and Safety Executive strongly recommend that you undertake regular annual refresher training every year for the time that your certificate is valid, once you first aid certificate expires, you must undertake a new Emergency First Aid at Work course to continue to be a workplace first aider.

I Need the Three-Day FAW Course!, please

This is a high level First Aid course for all other workplaces that have more risks that those that work at an adminstrative enviroment.

Three-day first aid course teaches students a range of medical conditions that are common in the community and in workplaces and how to manage those conditions as a first aider in the workplace.

The Three-day first aid course also covers workplace injuries for example, how to manage crush injuries, these types of workplace injuries are not covered on the one day first aid course.

So, I have done the FAW course, what do i do next?

The Health and Safety Executive strongly recommend that you undertake regular annual refresher training every year for the time that your certificate is valid, once you first aid certificate expires, you must undertake a new First Aid at Work Refresher or First Aid Requalification course to continue to be a workplace first aider.

Have you considered the risk of uncontrolled bleeding?

Machinery, tools, and sharp instruments are common in most workplaces, as such there is a risk of people becoming seriously injured.

The HSE now recommend that in workplaces where blood loss and uncontrolled blood loss is a possibility, training in the use of bleed control or hemorrhage control products or haemostatic dressings is recommended.

On both the EFAW and FAW courses training can be provided on how to stop the bleed, how to stop bleeding, and learn how to use bleed control products and what can stop bleeding fast.
