3 Day First Aid Training at Our Edinburgh, Broxburn Facility
Why does an employer need to have First Aiders?
Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 state that an employer is required to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, personnel and facilities to ensure their employees receive attention immediately if they are injured or taken ill at work. An employee who is injured or taken ill at work should receive immediate attention and this is the responsibility of the employer. In cases where there is a significant risk, persistent poor compliance with the law or a disregard for established standards, the HSE will prosecute.
What is a first aider?
Someone who has a qualification that the HSE approves of and has undertaken training can call themselves a first aider. This means that they must hold a valid certificate of competence in either: EFAW (emergency first aid at work) issued by a training organisation approved by HSE or a recognised Awarding Body of Ofqual/SQA (Scottish qualifications Authority).
