First Aid in the workplace - changes ahead

As of 1st October there will be changes to the regulation of First Aid in the workplace to ensure that businesses are undertaking the appropriate training for the size and nature of their working environment.

This does not mean that your existing First Aid at Work certificate will expire in October but it is something that businesses will need to be aware of in future and it's a timely reminder that we all need to be compliant.

For the full article and an explanation from one of our members on how the changes will improve the standard of training across the board, click here.

You can also view the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) Guidelines here.

Another of our members, Ian Kershaw MBE of the Federation of First Aid Training Organisations is holding a conference to discuss how changes in the industry will affect employers and trainers alike, at Lancashire County Cricket Club on 16th May. If you would like to know more, contact Ian on 0161 494 9045 or email: inakershaw@fofato.co.uk
