HSE First Aid guidance update April 2018

Date: 10 Apr 2018

First Aid at Work Guidance Update  

HSE have recently amended their first aid at work guidance and the key changes are: 

1. The introduction of blended learning as an accepted method of first aid training delivery.

2. The addition of AED use to FAW and EFAW course content. 

3. Haemostatic dressings/tourniquets have been added as examples of additional training/equipment that might be  identified as appropriate in an employer’s needs assessment.  

4. Minor amends to clarify the removal of  HSE’s training approval status and the revision of links to other legislation that has changed over the last few years.


The following publications and web pages have been updated accordingly.
