The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) have clarified the position regarding first aid training in the UK during the latest coronavirus lockdown. The HSE have been in contact with all nations and received updates on the ability to provide first aid training with their statements below.

There is also information at the bottom of the newsletter with regards to extensions to paediatric first aid qualifications.

Please note that the common message from all nations is that training can continue where it is required to operate the business and comply with health and safety or other legislation.
 

First Aid Training in England

The policy position of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is that first aid training required to comply with health and safety or other legislation can continue to take place under relevant coronavirus restrictions in England. All possible measures must be taken to ensure that both training activities and environment are COVID-19 secure.

Under current restrictions, some premises are closed to the public or are prohibited from carrying out their normal business. These premises can be considered for use as training venues, providing the conditions outlined above are adhered to.

All businesses and individuals should adhere to current regulations and follow relevant Government guidance.

HSE’s current guidance on first aid certificate extensions covers all of GB and remains unaltered.
 






 

First Aid at Work (FAW) and Emergency First aid at Work (EFAW) certificates requalification

First aid providers have resumed first aid training and assessment. In some cases, there remains a back log or limited availability.

FAW or EFAW certificates that expired after 16 March 2020 can remain valid until 31 October 2020 or 6 months from date of expiry, whichever is later. All requalification training for these certificates should be completed by 31 March 2021.

To qualify for the extension, employers must be able to demonstrate that:

  • they have made every effort to arrange requalification training as soon as possible and can explain in detail why they have not been able to do so. For example, they must show evidence that staff with expired certificates are booked on to EFAW or FAW requalification courses, if requested by an inspector

  • they have adequate and appropriate equipment and facilities to give first aid to any employee who is injured or becomes ill at work

  • the level of first aid cover provided remains appropriate for their particular work environment

  • the level of first aid provision necessary in high risk settings is fully maintained, eg in construction, agriculture, engineering and chemicals

This guidance now applies to employers in England, Scotland and Wales.
