Course Structure

The course is broken down into 2 main sections:

  1. Health and Safety Requirements
  2. What is RIDDOR?

Course Overview

Our First Aid Requirements and RIDDOR course is designed to be used by both managers and employers to help determine the first aid personnel they require. It also explains what has to be reported to RIDDOR, as well as who should do it and how.

First aid can save lives and prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones. Therefore, it’s of utmost importance to have people available with the required level of training to maintain the safety of your staff. RIDDOR stands for Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995, which govern the reporting of accidents at work.

According to the HSE, in 2015/16, 621,000 workers sustained an injury at work, yet only 72,702 injuries and workplace accidents were reported to RIDDOR. Not reporting an accident is a criminal offence and can cause major complications for your company. Make sure you understand your responsibilities and know how to report to RIDDOR with our First Aid Requirements and RIDDOR Training.

The programme is designed to be used in conjunction with our First Aid Appointed Person Training. The title is specifically for work environments with a relatively small number of employees, with low levels of risks.

This eLearning course only provides awareness education. Face to face training is also a requirement to be fully equipped with the practical skills and knowledge to carry this forward in your organisation.
