AED Training Mandatory For All First Aid At Work Courses
As of 31st December 2016 The First Aid at Work (FAW) and the Emergency First at Work (EFAW) courses required all workplace first aiders to be trained in the use of Automatic External Defibrillators (AED). The revision to the syllabus follows updates to the Resuscitation Council Guidelines on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in October 2015.
AEDs play a vital role in drastically improving a casualty’s chance of survival after a Cardiac Arrest, the UK’s biggest killer. Courses now include an introduction to cardiac arrest, identifying a cardiac arrest and the how to effectively use a defibrillator in an emergency.
