FAW Course FAQ's

In the UK, the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 requires employers to provide “adequate and appropriate” first-aid equipment, facilities, and personnel for their employees.

These regulations state that employers must:

  • Appoint a “responsible person” to be in charge of first-aid arrangements
  • Carry out a first-aid needs assessment to determine the specific first-aid requirements of the workplace
  • Provide appropriate first-aid equipment and facilities
  • Provide information and training to employees on first-aid arrangements
  • Ensure that there are enough first-aiders to cover the workplace during working hours

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is responsible for enforcing these regulations and providing guidance to employers on how to comply with them.

In practice, employers should conduct a first-aid needs assessment to determine their specific first-aid requirements. The assessment should consider the size of the workforce, the nature of the work, the nature and severity of the injuries or illnesses that are most likely to occur, the location of the workplace, the availability of trained first-aiders, and the availability of other first-aid resources, such as a defibrillator.


Some examples of workplaces that may be considered high-risk and would likely require a FAW course:

  • Construction sites
  • Manufacturing plants
