First aid regulation guidance

First aid regulation changes

New regulations covering workplace first aid provision have been in place from October 2013.

St John Ambulance is here to guide you through the regulation changes, cutting through the complexity so you know exactly how they affect your business. Our series of advice articles covering the changes to first aid regulations will help you to identify your first aid needs, choose the right training, choose a first aid provider and set up and stock your first aid rooms or areas.

The workplace first aid regulations in Northern Ireland are different to those in England, Wales and Scotland. You need to ensure that you use an HSENI approved training provider for your workplace first aid courses.
