Annual Refresher in First Aid

This HSE-recommended half-day first aid annual 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 employees 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 ensures attendee’s skills remain sharp and current so they can act with confidence in a first aid emergency. As an employer, it also ensures that you adhere to recommended health & safety practices.

With a 3 year gap in-between courses, it can pay to maintain the highest levels of first aid skills which really could mean the difference between life and death in a serious emergency situation.
