HSE Guidance

What has changed?

From 1 October 2013 the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) no longer regulated first aid training providers and employers are now free to choose their preferred first aid training company.

What has not changed?

The law that employers should provide adequate and appropriate equipment and personnel to provide assistance to injured or ill colleagues, and provide trained first aiders based on their own needs assessment has not changed. The HSE still ensures a standard of first aid training for the workplace is maintained and the recognised courses will remain the same – the 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work, the 3 day First Aid at Work, the 2 day Requalification First Aid at Work and the Annual Refresher.

What does this mean for you?

The HSE recommends that when selecting a Training Organisation (various options available), employers should carry out due diligence to ensure that the organisation selected is suitable. The HSE have provided guidance for employers and state:

“The guidance however does not PROMOTE, RECOMMEND or SUPPORT any particular option. It does not comment on the quality of individual training courses or the service provided, nor does it provide an assessment of the quality assurance systems of any provider or class of provider”.

How can we help?

It is business as usual for JaLee! We were approved by the HSE for 8 years and our quality assurance systems are firmly in place. Because of this, you can be reassured that we meet the required standards as set out in the HSE information sheet ‘Selecting a first aid training provider’.

  • Our trainers and assessors are suitably qualified and experienced
  • Trainers and training standards are regularly monitored by internal and external sources
  • Training is taught in line with current practice and the course content meets HSE guidance
  • We have a quality assurance and complaints procedure
  • All our courses are evaluated by each and every delegate
  • We have all necessary insurances for training and event cover

We can offer Ofqual Regulated Qualifications (RQF) and are a member of The First Aid Industry Body (No 49/05351) so you are in safe hands! Because we are independent, if you choose us as your training provider you can have any training option you wish.

On certain courses, we can offer a Level 2/3 Certificate. There will be a small additional fee to pay and each delegate must successfully pass a written examination to gain this qualification. Please make a note on the booking form if you need a Level 2/3 Certificate.

We will continue to help with your first aid needs assessment by following the HSE guidelines.

As always, our excellent customer service and competitive pricing structure will remain firmly in place.

Assuring you of our best attention always,

Julie and Lee
