For many smaller low risk companies, the legal minimum for first aid provision is to have someone in their company who simply looks after first aid – this is the First Aid Appointed Person.

This e-learning programme explains exactly what the role of First Aid Appointed Person requires a member of staff to do, as well as introducing best practice in the event of an accident or injury at work.

It is intended that this programme is used alongside First Aid Requirements in the Workplace (including RIDDOR). This programme will indicate the need for a first aid appointed person, as well as explaining the benefits to your organisation. Free trial and online demo available.

First Aid Appointed Person in the Workplace Course Contents: 

  1. Health and Safety Requirements

This section looks at how the decision to have a first aid appointed person was made. It explains their role and duties. It looks at the accident record book, confidentiality, making sure all staff know how first aid is handled and what should be in the first aid kit.

  1. Dealing with an Emergency

This section explains exactly what must be done in a first aid emergency situation. It tells the first aid appointed person what to look out for, so that they can tell the emergency services what they need to know and explains how to call the emergency services.

A first aid appointed person should remain calm, confident and assured – the last thing a casualty needs is to see someone panic and look like they don’t know what to do!

Test & Certificate

This First Aid Appointed Person in the Workplace training programme concludes with a 10 question multiple choice test with printable certificate. In addition, brief in-course questionnaires guide the user through the sections of the training, and are designed to reinforce learning and ensure maximum user engagement throughout. As well as printable user certificates, training progress and results are all stored centrally in your LMS (Learning Management System) and can be accessed any time to re-print certificates, check and set pass marks and act as proof of a commitment to ongoing legal compliance.


Legislation

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 requires employers to:

  • Provide adequate and appropriate first aid equipment
  • Provide adequate and appropriate first aid facilities
  • Provide adequate and appropriate first aid personnel
  • Provide Risk Assessments
  • Inform Employees of the First Aid arrangements

The legal minimum requirement is that someone is appointed to look after first aid requirements. They are not required to administer first aid and so do not need full first aid training, but they must be present to take charge if someone is injured or becomes ill at work. The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 must be followed by ALL workplaces, including those with fewer than 5 employees.
