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.

The First Aid at Work Annual Refresher

The First Aid at Work Annual Refresher qualification is specifically designed to allow qualified first
aiders to update their first aid skills yearly, until requalification training is required. Successful candidates will leave with a renewed confidence, having had the opportunity to practise essential first aid procedures, as well as learn the latest techniques needed to deal with an emergency situation.

With all subjects covered in just half a day, this course is an ideal way to satisfy HSE requirements whilst minimising disruption to your organisation’s day to day activities!

Be prepared

Did you know that the HSE guidelines state that employers should ensure their first aiders remain competent to perform their role?

As such, it is strongly recommended that first aiders undertake annual refresher training to practise their skills and update their knowledge on the latest first aid procedures.
