Since the 1st of October, 2013 it has been the responsibility of business owners to provide first aiders in the workplace, every TQUK First Aid Qualification will provide businesses with competent first aiders as well as regulation compliance, the HSE ceased approving First Aid training providers to deliver First Aid training.

This approval system has been replaced with a recommendation that first aid training in the workplace should be approved by Awarding Organisations that are regulated by Ofqual.

All of our First Aid Qualifications have been produced in consultation with the HSE and the qualification regulators and are supported by Skills for Health. TQUK are also approved by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to provide the new EFAW and FAW qualifications for the purpose of Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations.
