First Aid Courses

On the 1st October 2009, the Health and Saf​ety Executive (HSE) implemented new rules for employers on first aid at work. Employers must by law carry out a first aid training needs assessment. There are now two types of first aiders: First Aid at Work (3 day course) and an Emergency First Aid at Work (1 day course). In addition, the HSE now recommends that all first aiders attend annual refresher training of 3 hours.

This assessment will help you identify what type of first aid training your first aiders need, how many first aiders you need and where they should be located.

Your First Aid Needs Assessment should consider the following topics:

  • The nature of the work, the hazards and the risks
  • The nature of the workforce
  • The organisation's history of accidents and illnesses
  • The needs of travelling, remote and lone workers
  • Work patterns such as shift work
  • The distribution of the workforce
  • The remoteness of the site from emergency medical services
  • Employees working on shared or multi-occupied sites
  • Annual leave and other absences of first aiders
  • First-aid provision for non-employees
  • The size of the organisation

It is the responsibility of an employer to decide how many employees are trained as First Aiders, as well as which type of training they need. Assessing the risks of your workplace and referring to HSE regulations on the appropriate requirements for your organisation will help you make the right decision.

Employers should consider the following when selecting individuals to attend:

  • Reliability, disposition and communication skills
  • Aptitude and ability to absorb new knowledge and learn new skills
  • Ability to cope with stressful and physically demanding emergency procedures
  • Normal duties are such that they may be left to go immediately and rapidly to an emergency

More information and guidance can be found at External link opens in new windowwww.hse.gov.uk/firstaid​or contact us and we may be able to help you decide what level of training your staff team require.
