First Aid at Work courses Scotland and UK

First Aid at Work courses

Contour Training Ltd offer a range of First Aid at Work courses working either to our own in-house Contour Training or Lantra Awards accreditation.


The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide suitable equipment, facilities and first aid training to enable immediate assistance to be given to employees if they are injured or become ill at work.

 

Since 1 October 2013 HSE no longer approves first aid training and qualifications – and no longer approves first aid training organisations. This means that businesses have more flexibility in how they manage their provision of first aid in the workplace.

 

When determining the level of first aid training needed for your business, a risk assessment should be carried out for the specific business and workplace environment, taking into account the number of employees, size, location and work activity. This HSE Guidance for employers document may be helpful.

 

If you are not sure about what level of training is needed for your business the following case studies published by HSE may be helpful as a starting point. http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/casestudy9.pdf
