Changes to First Aid Training

Some Changes to First Aid Training From 1 October 2013 Health and Safety Executive (HSE) approval for first aid training providers will cease on the 1 October 2013.

Removing the HSE approval process will give businesses greater flexibility to choose their own training providers providing they have undertaken due diligence with regard to the first aid training provider. HSE has published new draft guidance to help employers assess the first aid requirements within their specific workplace. HSE has also produced separate guidance on how to select an appropriate first aid training provider. Both can be found on the HSE website.
