This HSE approved qualification came into effect on 1st October 2009, along with new guidance on assessing the needs of First Aid in your workplace.
Do your staff members need first aid training?
Your risk assessment of First Aid needs may well identify the need for Emergency First Aiders either as an addition to your First Aiders, or where the risk of your business is low, it may well identify them as being sufficient without the need of additional First Aiders.
