Emergency First Aid for The Construction EnvironmentDownload PDF
This course has been developed from the content generally accepted for Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) qualifications.
With particular emphasis placed upon workplace injuries typically associated with the industry, this qualification is an ideal replacement for the typical EFAW qualification, providing specificity towards more common injuries sustained on site, and improving the effectiveness of the training.
Upon completion, students will have have an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of individuals in relation to first aid, how to execute those responsibilities, in addition to a better understanding of legislation in the workplace.
