Covered in this Course

The First Aid Requirements and RIDDOR Training course is broken down into 2 sections.

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.

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.
