Proposals to Revise the Health & Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981
01 Dec 2012
The HSE is proposing to revise the Health & Safety
(First-Aid) Regulations 1981. The SWA's response expresses
concern that the removal of the requirement for all first-aid
training and qualifications to be approved by the HSE may lower the
standard and lead to a proliferation of training providers.
The SWA would welcome example case studies on dealing with chemical
burns and multiple casualties as well as specific information on
administrating first-aid in confined spaces.
