PLEASE NOTE!!Health and Safety Executive Logo

Businesses now have more flexibility in how they manage their provision of first aid in the workplace following a change in health and safety regulations.

On the 1st October 2013 the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 were amended, removing the requirement for HSE to approve first aid training and qualifications, reducing costs and the burden on industry. Basically the HSE no longer approves first-aid training and qualifications. Removing the HSE approval process will give businesses greater flexibility to choose their training providers , however the responsibility is placed on Employers to carry out the required due diligence to ensure training providers are meeting the standards the HSE still require.

“Employers still have a legal duty to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.”

HSE will continue to set the standards for training. While the changes give employers flexibility, the one day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) and three day First Aid at Work (FAW) courses remain the building blocks for first aid training. Essentially the changes affected how first Aid Training providers deliver their training to the standard.
