First Aid Training Courses

As a school what should we do?

Legally schools need to comply with the Health and Safety Regulations, 1981, which, states that employers have a legal responsibility to make sure that there is adequate provision in terms of first aiders and equipment in case of first aid emergencies within the work environment or on trips away from school, for their employees. Employers also have health and safety responsibilities towards non-employees. The Health and Safety Commission (HSC) guidance recommends that organisations, such as schools, which provide a service for others should include them in their risk assessments and provide for them. In the light of their legal responsibilities for those in their care, schools should consider carefully the likely risks to pupils and visitors.

The Department of Education states that it is up to Local Education Authorities and schools to develop their own policies and procedures, based on an assessment of local need and recommends a minimum provision of:

  • A suitable stocked first aid box
  • An appointed person to take charge of first aid arrangements
  • Information for employees on first aid arrangements
  • This minimum provision must be supplemented with a risk assessment to determine any additional provision taking into consideration the size of the school, number of employees, split sites etc.
  • Nurseries and primary schools need to be compliant with both HSE and Ofsted, EYES requirements

What’s in our courses?

The school’s first aid needs should be reassessed regularly, at least annually to ensure that the first aid provision remains adequate for the schools needs.

Schools should make sure that their insurance arrangements provide full cover for claims arising from actions of staff acting within the scope of their employment.
