Consultation on removal of requirement for HSE to approve first-aid training

Close date: 3 December 2012

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) consults on proposals to remove the requirement for the HSE to approve employers' first-aid training and qualifications. It also consults on proposals to review the Approved Code of Practice and associated guidance relating to this issue, and seeks views on the principles on which the revised guidance should be based and what guidance would help employers assess what they need in terms of first-aid provision and select training providers.
