Selecting a first-aid training provider -

A guide for employers


What are the Legal Requirements for Workplaces?

Low Hazard Environments

(Eg: shops, offices, libraries)

Less than 25 employed – 1 appointed person

Between 25 and 50 employed – 1 first aider trained in Emergency First Aid at Work

More than 50 employed – 1 first aider trained in First Aid at Work per 100 employed (or part thereof)

Higher Hazard Environments

(Eg: light engineering and assembly work, food processing, warehousing, extensive work with dangerous machinery or sharp instruments, construction, chemical manufacturing)

Less than 5 employed – 1 appointed person

Between 5 and 50 employed – 1 first aider trained in Emergency first aid at work or First Aid at Work depending on the type of injuries that may occur

More than 50 employed – 1 first aider trained in First Aid at Work for every 50 employed (or part thereof)

The Importance of Annual Refresher Training of First Aiders

HSE in our guidance strongly recommends employers ensure their first aiders receive annual refresher training. These courses are of very short duration ie less than half a day.  The reason for refreshing these skills annually is that it helps maintain their competency until they re-qualify.  So as an employer if you wish to minimise this risk and maintain your first aiders competency consider introducing annual refresher training if you haven’t done so already.


Department of Education Announcement on Paediatric First Aid

On 12 March, the Childcare Minister Sam Gyimah announced proposals to make it a requirement that newly qualified early years staff (with a level 2 or level 3 childcare qualification) will have to have a paediatric first aid or emergency paediatric first aid certificate before they can be included in the required adult: child ratios in an early years setting. This proposal will be subject to consultation after the election, but it is expected that this change will take effect from September 2016.

There will also be a new special award – to be known as ‘Millie’s Mark’ – to be displayed by nurseries who have achieved gold-standard paediatric first aid provision.  Early years providers will also be able to take advantage of a scheme previously only open to schools to purchase automated external defibrillators (AEDs) at a reduced price. For more information please see the Department of Education press release.
