First Aid Training for Businesses (UK)

Updated: Oct 31, 2022

Unsure of First Aid Training requirements?

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 (as amended in 2018) places a duty on employers to make first aid provision for employees. The practical aspects of this statutory duty for employees and for the self-employed are set out in the Guidance on Regulations.

In order to meet regulatory requirements, employers have a responsibility to carry out an assessment of first aid needs based on the hazards and risks in their work, select a suitable training provider and undertake due diligence on that provider.

Employers are also advised to consider the provision of mental health and wellbeing support when carrying out assessment.
