» Back to listing Draft First Aid guidance published ahead of regulation changes

4th March 2013

The HSE has published two separate guidance documents on its website after a consultation on proposed amendments to the First Aid Regulations (1981), and the rescinding of the obligation to have HSE give its approval for providers of first aid training.

The HSE board and ministers must give their final approval, but the amendments are set to come into effect in October.

"Removing the HSE approval process will give businesses greater flexibility to choose their own training providers and first aid training that is right for their workplace, based on their needs assessment and their individual business needs," HSE policy advisor Peter Brown said.

"The draft guidance documents aim to provide practical support to help businesses assess and understand their first aid needs and find a provider best suited to them."
