EFAW or FAW WHICH IS THE RIGHT?
First aid at work (FAW) includes all of the Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) content. In addition FAW includes how to treat various minor injuries and illnesses that do not require the attendance of emergency services. A first aid needs assessment is the first this to do. This will provides a guide to whether, in your specific workplace FAW or EMAW is most appropriate. Usually FAW is better in higher-risk workplaces where minor injuries like cuts and scrapes are more likely.
