HSE guidance places responsibility on employers to achieve various levels of due diligence to ensure that the quality of training meets the legislative requirements as follows:
Regulated first aid qualification accredited by an awarding body like Qualsafe and delivered by a company like Solent Medical Skills – no due diligence required.
Training from the voluntary aid societies like St Johns etc – employers may still wish to undertake some of the elements of due diligence.
First aid associations and non-accredited first aid providers – full due diligence required.
This could not be clearer. If you get your first aid training from anywhere but an accredited training organisation, you may leave yourself open to legal risk. A course with Solent Medical Skills ensures complete peace of mind!
