If you require a slightly more detailed course, have a larger work force or perhaps work with tools or in an environment with specific higher level risks you may wish to have an FAW certificate. The course covers all elements of EFAW but also looks at fractures, chest injuries, crush injuries, head injuries & a number of medical conditions including diabetes & asthma. We will also show you safe methods to move casualties when necessary.
