First Aid Requirements Course Contents

This programme is designed to be used by managers and employers to help decide what first aid personnel they require. It also explains what has to be reported to RIDDOR, who should do this and how.

First aid can save lives and prevent minor injuries becoming major ones, so having people with the right training in the right places is essential for the safety of your staff. RIDDOR stands for Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 – these govern the reporting of accidents at work.

According to the HSE, in 2015/16, 621,000 workers sustained an injury at work, yet only 72,702 injuries and workplace accidents were reported to RIDDOR. Not reporting an accident is a criminal offence and can cause major complications for businesses. Make sure you understand your responsibilities and know how to report to RIDDOR with our First Aid Requirements and RIDDOR Training.
