First aiders and training
You might decide that you need someone trained in first aid, sometimes known as a first aider.
There are no hard and fast rules on how many trained first aiders you should have. It depends on the nature of your work and its location.
First aiders are trained by a competent training provider in:
emergency first aid at work (EFAW) – at this level they're qualified to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill while at work
first aid at work (FAW) – qualified to EFAW level but can also apply first aid to a range of specific injuries and illnesses
First aid training
Use the findings of your first aid needs assessment to decide:
if you need someone trained in first aid
what's an adequate and appropriate level of training
how many people you train
Keep training up to date with regular refresher courses.
Finding the right first aid training for your workplace
You're responsible for making sure whoever trains your employees is competent.
