This page is for all our HSE FIRST AID AT WORK COURSES – FAW and EFAW.
The First aid at work training course provides the comprehensive set of practical skills needed by first aiders in most workplaces to become a confident first aider at work. Giving both the ability and knowledge to deal with first aid emergencies. It meets the standards required to help comply with Health and Safety (First aid) regulations.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This course is designed for people who want to receive our most thorough first aid training.
TOURNIQUETS AND HAEMOSTATIC DRESSINGS.
There has been a change in training legislation from 2017 where tourniquets and haemostatic dressings are now included in first aid training.
Teesside First Aid can now offer the high risk course for applying first aid to catastrophic bleeds caused by amputations, explosions, gun shots, puncture wounds etc.
Each business should conduct a risk assessment as recommended by the HSE and where a high risk has been found for the potential for catastrophic bleeding then the high risk course should be chosen over the normal FAW courses. The HSE have suggested businesses involved in construction, agriculture, forestry and manufacturing to name a few should consider this course. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding this.

EQUESTRIAN FIRST AID AT WORK
Our equestrian course is aimed at human first aid for anyone involved with horses where the First Aid at Work qualification is needed in addition to specific injuries involved when working with horses and a course tailored to equestrian subjects. If you are involved in teaching riding or other activities you are required to have the BHS first aid qualification or the HSE First Aid at Work qualification. With this course we go one better and adapt a course that includes the approved FAW with extra subjects and apply the course the the equestrian world.
