Legal Requirements 

Updated guidance from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) came into effect on 1 October 2013. The updates allow greater freedom to choose who provides your first aid at work training. However, the HSE has stressed that the legal requirement for employers to ensure that they make adequate provision for first aid, in accordance with their first-aid needs assessment, will remain unchanged.

Employers should carry out thorough checks to ensure that quality of training is not compromised. The HSE website provides a Due diligence checklist, you can use when selecting your training provider. For your convenience we have completed the due diligence checklist so you can be assured that by using BRADFORD TEACHING HOSPITALS to deliver your First Aid Training, your organisation will meet current legislation.

First Aid needs assessment

All employers should make an assessment of their first aid needs based on the hazards and risks involved in their work. First aid save lives and your level of provision should be “adequate and appropriate” to your circumstances.
