HSE Changes 1st October

2 October 2013 in Classroom Training, Featured Articles, First Aid, Instructor, QCF

Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailAt  midnight last night the HSE ceased to directly approve the provision of First Aid Training for the Workplace.  This places the responsibility for selecting a first aid training provider on the employer, the HSE have created a guide for employers to follow.

All ProTrainings registered instructors now have the option to offer their customers or employees the fully accredited QCF qualification for Emergency First Aid at Work or First Aid at Work Courses (subject to completing our QCF Application and receiving approval) or The ProTrainings (Trade Organisation) certificates.

Employers who select an Ofqual Regulated QCF accredited course do not have to prove due diligence by completing a checklist to satisfy themselves of the competency of that organisation for this reason we recommend that all active trainers register with us as a QCF centre if they haven’t done so already to ensure that they can meet the needs of all of their potential customers.

New Lone Worker video online training launched

25 June 2013 in Health & Safety, Instructor, Online Training

New Lone Worker video online training launched at Working alone is not in itself against the law, and it will often be safe to do so, however the law requires employers and others to think about and deal with any health and safety risks and or hazards of the work before people should be allowed to work alone. Employers have responsibility for the health, safety and welfare at work of all of their employees. They are also responsible for the health and safety of those affected by work activities, for example any self-employed people they engage and visitors such as contractors.

Lone worker training ensures that lone workers have knowledge to keep safe at work and employers understand their responsibilities.
