Important Information

HSE First Aid Training regulations - How they affect your business

You may not be aware that the HSE’s approval of first aid qualifications for businesses has changed.

Employers now have a legal requirement to undertake due diligence on their chosen training provider and are now directly responsible for the quality and type of training they choose to undertake.

You now have two main options:

Option 1 Choose Awarding Body Regulated training governed by either Ofqual or SQA. Your training certificate will have an OFQUAL logo and you will receive a government backed qualification. If you choose this option, the HSE states that you do not have to use their checklist of legal responsibilities to satisfy yourself of the competency of your chosen training organisation; their OFQUAL registration is a guarantee that they have met the required standard to fulfil your legal responsibilities.
First Aid Cert Comparison

If you wish to choose this option, please make sure that the course you’re being quoted for is an Ofqual regulated qualification. Ofqual qualifications will always carry the Ofqual logo on the certificate. If the certificate doesn’t contain the logo, it won’t be Ofqual regulated and won’t be exempt from requiring due diligence to be undertaken by your company.

Option 2 Choose training that is not awarding body regulated this training will not have the OFQUAL logo on the certificates you receive. It is then your legal responsibility to complete checks on the training organisation and their trainers yourself, as stated on the HSE website (see ‘Selecting a First-aid Training Provider’).

RQF stands for the Regulated Qualifications Framework. It is a replacement for the the QCF and the NQF before it. It is essentially a credit transfer system to make regulating and assessing qualifications simpler for both accrediting bodies and businesses comparing courses.

All our First Aid courses are regulated by OFQUAL in England, DCELLS in Wales, and CCEA in Northern Ireland.

We are very conscious of the demands of running a business, so we provide flexible training to suit your needs. We offer in-house training at your location. We will work evenings or weekends, or can tailor our course over different days as and when you require. Call us for more details and to talk to us about what you want from your training.

Yes, in cases where there is a significant risk, a disregard for established standards or persistent poor compliance with the law, the HSE may prosecute. But this depends on the specifics of your business and what is deemed ‘adequate and appropriate’ for it. Call us for more information.

As a business in the UK, you are required to meet the terms of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations of 1981. The HSE states that employers are required to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed.

All our First Aid courses are regulated and comply with legal requirements. We will ensure your business does too.
