Annual Refresher in First Aid
This HSE-recommended half-day first aid refresher course refreshes the knowledge previously gained in a First Aid at Work (FAW) or Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course. The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) recommends that workers take a first aid refresher course on an annual basis after receiving their 3 year certificates in First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work. This keeps your colleagues’ skills sharp and up to date so they can act with confidence in a first aid emergency. As an employer, it also ensures that you abide to recommended health & safety practices.
Upon completion of this half a day course, delegates will receive a first aid annual refresher certificate which is recognised by the HSE and valid for 1 year.
