Some useful information:
From 1 October 2013 HSE no longer approves training and qualifications for the purposes of first aid at work.
Training organisations who were formerly ‘Approved’ by HSE to deliver First Aid at Work Training can no longer claim to be HSE Approved or use their HSE Approval number.
The flexibility arising from the changes in the Regulations gives employers more choice in the first aid training they provide for their employees and who they choose to provide it.
An employer will need to undertake varying levels of due diligence (reasonable enquiry or investigation) into how they select a first aid training provider.
