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.
