Where an organisation’s risk assessment of First Aid needs identifies that there is a requirement for Emergency First Aid at Work practitioners, then this Award for Emergency First Aid at Work satisfies the requirements of the regulatory body for First Aid - the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and HSENI (Northern Ireland).

All learners will have the skills and knowledge to provide the organisation with Emergency First Aider’s that can provide treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner.


A minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities, plus some pre-course activity could be required.


A range of subjects is covered including:

  • What is Emergency First Aid
  • Action in an emergency
  • The respiratory system
  • Adult basic life support
  • Minor burns and scalds
  • Legislation
  • Primary survey
  • Resuscitation
  • Foreign objects
  • Epilepsy
  • Responsibilities
  • Secondary assessment
  • Disorders of respiration
  • Disorders of the circulation
  • Wounds and bleeding


Assessment is on going by the instructor, along with a multiple choice question paper, and a three-year qualification will be issued to those who satisfy the criteria. In addition, the HSE and HSENI strongly recommend that all students undergo an annual refresher programme of three hours.


A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated on this course and all candidates must be a minimum of 16 years of age to qualify.

 Age Limit

Students must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a full HSE/HSENI approved qualification can be offered to all, subject to assessment.

A student cannot claim the official title of ‘Emergency First Aider in the Workplace’ until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role.

The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.
