Workplace first aid training requirements

Workplace first aid training requirements are something many businesses forget to consider or are unsure of. Basically workplace first aid training is often a requirement of even the smallest of workplaces, which must make arrangements for action in event of an emergency, provide a first aid kit and possibly provide trained workplace first aiders.

The focus is now on the employer to decide their own requirements following an assessment of their workplace, workforce and activities. To assist with this assessment you may want to use our handy first aid requirements calculator, which can be accessed by clicking the logo below.

The calculator asks a small number of questions about your workplace and work activities and then generates a report which may act as the framework for your own assessment. For many workplaces the report will be sufficient to decided on your workplace first aid training requirements, but it can be updated and amended as required by the user. The report is available in PDF format and information is provided on what first aid training, if any, is required.

Each report is different, but it is likely to refer to courses such as First Aid at Work courses, Emergency First Aid at Work, Basic Life Support and Defibrillator training sessions.
