The Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work may be more suitable for lower-risk work environments, such as offices and shops and/or organisations with fewer than 100 employees. For regulatory purposes, successfully completing the Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work will enable the candidate to act as a first aider in the workplace.

  1. Hi, I love your article. I recently published an article on preserving beef. I like to make my own beef for New Year!. We will be creating a basic ice cream to go with it. The teenagers will be at home with me and I am sure they are going to love it.
