First Aid News

Businesses now have more flexibility in how they manage their provision of first aid in the workplace following a change in health and safety regulations.

As of today (1 October 2013), the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 have been amended, removing the requirement for HSE to approve first aid training and qualifications.

The change is part of HSE’s work to reduce the burden on businesses and put common sense back into health and safety, whilst maintaining standards. The changes relating to first aid apply to businesses of all sizes and from all sectors.

Andy McGrory, HSE’s policy lead for First Aid, said: “HSE no longer approves first-aid training and qualifications. Removing the HSE approval process will give businesses greater flexibility to choose their own training providers and first aid training that is right for their work place, based on their needs assessment and their individual business needs.

“Employers still have a legal duty to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.”

Information, including the regulations document and a guidance document to help employers identify and select a competent training provider to deliver any first-aid training indicated by their first-aid needs assessment are available on the HSE website at http://www.hse.gov.uk/firstaid/[1].

HSE will continue to set the standards for training viagra sur paris. While the changes give employers flexibility, the one day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) and three day First Aid at Work (FAW) courses remain the building blocks for first aid training.

As part of the changes, the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) text which was previously included in guidance document L74 (which consisted of only 12 sentences), has been incorporated into the new guidance. The advice in the guidance sets out clearly the recommended practical actions needed, and the standards to be achieved, to ensure compliance with duties under the 1981 Regulations. This is intended as a comprehensive guide on ensuring compliance with the law.

Paediatric First Aid Training News

New nursery and pre-school staff will be required to undertake paediatric first aid for the first time, thanks to new government proposals.

The plans have received the support of parents Joanne and Dan Thompson, who have been campaigning for the change following the tragic death of their daughter, Millie, at nursery in October 2012. Their important campaign culminated in an e-petition signed by over 103,000 people.

The new proposals will mean newly qualified staff with a childcare level 2 and 3 qualification must have an emergency paediatric first aid or full paediatric first aid certificate – a life-saving change that will add approximately 15,000 additional trained early years professionals to our nurseries and pre-schools each and every year.

Mr and Mrs Thompson have also given their backing to the creation of a new special certificate – to be known as ‘Millie’s Mark’ – to be displayed by nurseries who have achieved gold-standard provision. The certificate will help to give parents assurance that their child is being cared for by safe and knowledgeable staff. It is hoped that over time the 2 initiatives announced today will help ensure that as many staff members as possible are trained in these important, life-saving skills.

Childcare and Education Minister, Sam Gyimah said:

As a parent myself, I know that every single mum and dad wants the confidence that those tasked with caring for their child have the right training should the absolute worst happen.

Today’s proposals will mean that thousands more staff will be able to respond to emergencies more quickly, making sure parents really can access the very best possible childcare choices for their families.

Not only will this help ensure children are safe while they learn, grow and develop, but it will also raise the quality and skills of the early years workforce to help them deal with day-to-day first aid issues, such as allergies and knowing when to call parents.

Joanne and Dan Thompson said:

We are both extremely pleased that the government have listened to our awareness campaign, and changes are being made that could ultimately save a child’s life.

We are proud that these changes are being made in memory of our precious daughter and that her legacy continues to grow – but we are heartbroken that these changes are only coming into place because we lost her.

The estimate of 15,000 new childcare workers entering the workplace with this specific qualification is fantastic news for parents and we fully support ‘Millie’s Mark’, and are looking forward to working with the specific government departments to help turn this into a reality.

The government has also announced today (12 March 2015) that it is extending a special deal enabling schools to buy life-saving defibrillator machines at reduced prices to all early years settings, including holiday and out-of-school providers.

Defibrillators are easy-to-use machines that could mean the difference between life and death for a child suffering from cardiac arrest. The machines work by delivering a controlled electric shock to the heart through sticky pads placed on the chest. The shocks interrupt the irregular heart rhythm that characterises a cardiac arrest, causing it to return to normal.

Driver CPC News

New figures released week ending 11th September 2015 showed that almost 99% of lorry drivers stopped during roadside checks in the last year had completed their Driver Certificate of Competence (CPC) periodic training.

These figures have been released to mark the first anniversary of when Driver CPC became compulsory for all professional HGV drivers.

DVSA Enforcement Service Manager, Gordon Macdonald, said: “We’re very pleased that the evidence from our roadside checks shows the vast majority of professional drivers have completed Driver CPC training, as required. CPC training helps all professional drivers to keep their skills and knowledge fully up-to-date. It also allows them to gain new skills, such as first aid or eco-driving techniques, and can help to improve road safety as well as saving money for operators.”

Praise for stakeholders:

DVSA’s Senior Training Accreditation Manager, Liz Heaton, has praised stakeholders who made essential contributions to the CPC scheme’s design and its roll-out across the UK.

She said: “By working in close partnership with representative bodies, employers, trainers and drivers, we introduced a flexible system that benefits all road users. It’s great that uptake is high, though even 99% can be improved upon. I’m confident our partners in the large vehicle industry will continue to create exciting, relevant training that improves fuel efficiency, professionalism and safety for all, including vulnerable road users.’’

DVSA carried out more than 89,000 roadside checks between 11 September 2014 and 31 August 2015. Only 1,400 Driver CPC related offences were recorded during these checks.
