First aid regulation changes

The changes to first aid regulations that came in place on 1 October 2013 removde the requirement for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to approve first aid training providers.

The removal of HSE approval process gives businesses greater flexibility to choose their own training providers and first aid training that is right for their workplace, based on their needs assessment and their individual business needs.

The workplace first aid regulations in Northern Ireland are different to those in England, Wales and Scotland.
