The Health and Safety [First-Aid] Regulations 1981 apply to all workplaces in Great Britain, including those with less than five employees, and to the self employed.

This Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) and guidance is aimed at all industries, although guidance on first aid in mines, diving and offshore is given in separate publications.

It sets out the aspects of first aid that employers need to address, offering practical advice on what they need to do, and aims to help employers understand and comply with the Regulations.

This second edition provides details of a new training regime for first-aiders in the workplace.

It has been revised to give employers greater flexibility in determining their first-aid provision and to recommend annual refresher training for first-aiders to help maintain their skills

Following the Government's acceptance of the Lofstedt Report, the HSE has now confirmed that the HSE approval system for first aid training providers will end April 2013.
