First aid regulation changes

Keep up to date - Regulation changes

The changes to first aid regulations that came into force 1 October 2013 remove the requirement for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to approve first aid training providers.

The removal of HSE approval process gives 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.

The workplace first aid regulations in Northern Ireland are different to those in England, Wales and Scotland. You need to ensure that you use an HSENI approved training provider for your workplace first aid courses.

The new law came into effect from 1 October 2013.
