First Aid Requirements and RIDDOR Course Contents

1. Health and Safety Requirements

First aid is all about dealing with an illness or injury quickly. But the number of first aiders and their level of training depends on how much risk there is, who the employees are and how many people  work in a particular area.

In this section we look at how you decide what is needed in your workplace. And we look at what training they need.

2. RIDDOR

RIDDOR stands for the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations.

Certain injuries and illnesses MUST be reported to RIDDOR and in this section we look at what needs to be reported and how this is done.

This section includes Reportable Injuries, Occupational Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences.

 Test & Certificate

This First Aid Requirements and RIDDOR course concludes with a 20 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

RIDDOR is the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995. First Aid at work relates to The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

Employers, those who are self-employed and those in control of premises are required by law to report serious workplace incidents (work-related deaths, major injuries, 7-day injuries (those causing more than seven days’ inability to carry out normal duties), work related diseases, and dangerous ‘near miss’ accidents).

[In the event of serious work-related injury or death] the responsible person shall: (i)forthwith notify the relevant enforcing authority thereof by the quickest practicable means; and (ii) within 10 days send a report thereof to the relevant enforcing authority

Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995, Section 3 (1)

Along with this, clear best practice must be in place incase of serious accident or injury to staff during working hours:

An employer shall provide, or ensure that there are provided, such equipment and facilities as are adequate and appropriate in the circumstances for enabling first-aid to be rendered to his employees if they are injured or become ill at work.

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, Section 3 (1)
