Under the proposed new regulations, employers will need to clearly identify areas were the two qualifications DO NOT meet all of their training requirements and source the appropriate additional training their staff need.

You MUST risk assess your workplace, use our tool on the website to do this, read the download detailing course content then identify what it is you need.

Three specific areas have been identified (example)

  1. The use of an automated external defibrillator (AED)
  2. Anaphylaxis First Aid, treatment of those who have severe allergic reactions including the administration of medication (epipen)
  3.  Paediatric First Aid, for those working with young children and infants

We can provide all of the above and the AED training can be tagged onto an FAW course, contact us should you need any advise, dont get caught short….. of training


As part of the proposed changes to the First Aid Regulations, employers have been given greater freedom to choose who they want to provide First Aid in the Workplace qualifications. This is great for businesses at asks only that Employers ensure that they undertake Due Diligence of the provider they use to ensure certain standards are met.

The areas that Due diligence covers are:

  • Trainers hold recognised teaching qualifications – Our trainers hold PTLLS qualifications or equivalent
  • Trainers have relevant First Aid Knowledge – All are experienced First Aiders holding a First Aid at Work qualification
  • Trainers are quality assured – Our Trainers are assessed every year at least once
  • Training follows the latest approved first aid protocols – Clinical leadership and training is provided by Paramedics
  • There is a documented complaints procedure in place – available to all
  • Details of topics covered on the course – meets the HSE guidance and is downloadable on the website
  • Existence of a documented course evaluation procedure – we hold records from 2004 
  • Assessors are appropriately qualified – Our assessors hold assessing qualifications

When training with FATE Due Diligence is assured, it has been since 2004 and will be for as long as we exist! we can provide evidence of meeting these requirements for you records if required.
