Legislation

The HSE states as of 1 October 2013, the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 have been amended, removing the requirement for HSE to approve first aid training and qualifications. This means that businesses now have more flexibility in how they manage their provision of first aid in the workplace. From 30th September 2013 the HSE approval of first aid training and qualifications will cease.

This means training providers currently approved by HSE, regardless of the date of expiry that appears on their approval certificate, their approval to undertake first training will expire and will no longer be valid.

An employer will still need to make an assessment of their first-aid needs to establish what provision for first aid is required. This will depend upon the workplace, taking into account, among other things, the number of employees, size, location and work activity.

HSE has published final guidance to the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, and provided further guidance on the selection of first aid training providers following a lengthy consultation with a wide range of stakeholders. Both publications are available on HSE’s website.
