The third edition of the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981, which incorporates the
amendment, is available for free download from the HSE website at www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/books/l74.htm.
It outlines legal requirements and details about how to assess a business’ first aid needs.
The HSE has also provided an additional document called ‘Selecting a first-aid training provider’, which is designed to help employers comply with the new regulations and oversee their own first aid training. This document can be downloaded from the HSE’s website at www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/geis3.htm.
