* H.S.E advice given to employers who were seeking First Aid qualifications for their employees;-
Quality Assurance Route: Level of due diligence required by the employer:
1 Regulated First Aid Qualification accredited by an Ofqual/SQA recognised Awarding Organisation (such as Qualsafe Awards) No due diligence required.
2 Training from the Voluntary Aid Societies (St. John, Red Cross, St Andrews Ambulance) The draft guidance says that employers may still “wish to undertake some of the elements of due diligence”.
3 First Aid Association/body affiliation Full due diligence should be carried out by the employer as “HSE is not in a position to verify the level of assurance” of this route.
4 Private / independent training provider with no accreditation/affiliation Full due diligence should be carried out by the employer as “HSE is not in a position to verify the level of assurance” of this route.
