What the HSE say:

A first aider is someone who has undertaken training appropriate to the circumstances. They must hold a valid certificate of competence in either:

  • first aid at work
  • emergency first aid at work
  • any other level of training or qualification that is appropriate to the circumstances

Employers can use the findings of their first aid needs assessment to decide the appropriate level to which first aiders should be trained.

  • Emergency first aid at work (EFAW) training enables a first aider to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill while at work.
  • First aid at work training includes the EFAW syllabus and equips the first aider to also apply first aid to a range of specific injuries and illness. 

To help keep their basic skills up to date, it is strongly recommended that first aiders undertake annual refresher training.

Certificates for the purposes of first aid at work last for three years. Before their certificates expire, first aiders will need to undertake a requalification course as appropriate, to obtain another three-year certificate. Once certificates have expired the first aider is no longer considered to be competent to act as a workplace first aider.
