FAW & EFAW Courses to Include Defibrillator Training

In June, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) announced the requirement for all workplace first-aiders to be trained in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) from 31 December 2016. This is as a result of a change to the guidelines of the Resuscitation Council UK, which now state that when managing a casualty in need of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), a first-aider must request an AED.

Since 2009 LifeSaver Training has offered its clients FREE Automated External Defibrillation Training and certification on all its first aid courses and we are pleased to see that this vital life saving skill will be incorporated in the First Aid at Work and Emergency First Aid at Work syllabus.
