On 1st October 2013 the HSE approval of first aid training providers ended and the responsibility for ensuring the standards of workplace first aid training moved from the HSE to employers.
The new regulations now require employers to carry out their own due diligence and investigations on the first aid training provider in order to ensure that the training meets the necessary standards.
Employers do not need to undertake any due diligence if their first aiders undertake OFQUAL (QCF) regulated first aid qualifications. This is because an Awarding Organisation regulates these courses, which means that both the training provider and the qualifications have already been verified as meeting the required standards.
Save Lives at Work only offer OFQUAL (QCF) regulated first aid at work qualifications.
By booking with us you can be assured that you have fulfilled your legal responsibilities for providing quality first aid training without having to undertake any due diligence.
