First Aid at Work 3 Day Course

What is HSE regulated First Aid at Work? The health & safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 requires employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees if they become ill or injured at work. These regulations apply to all workplaces including those with 5 or less employees and to the self employed. Employers need to provide first aid care on their premises for staff and have a duty of care towards all visitors and users of their facilities.
