The First Aid at Work training course aims to train employees up to the standard required by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) for the Purpose of the Health and Safety First Aid Regulations 1981.
New First Aid Legislation - October 2013
As of the 1st October 2013 the Health and Safety Executive is no longer required to formally approve first aid training and qualifications for the workplace. The law still states that employers should provide adequate and appropriate equipment and personnel to provide assistance to injured or ill colleagues, and provide trained first aiders based on their own needs assessment, this has not changed. The HSE will still ensure a standard of first aid training for the workplace is maintained.
A Provider You Can Trust
You must ensure that where your needs assessment indicates you need first aiders, they receive training that will teach them the necessary first aid skills and leave them feeling confident that they could respond to an emergency. To guarantee this, you should pick a training provider you can trust.
