HSE to revise the Emergency First Aid and First Aid at Work syllabuses

Posted by

In October 2015 changes took place with the Resuscitation Council guidelines on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This led to the HSE needing to review Emergency First Aid and First Aid at Work Syllabuses. All first aiders will now need to be trained in the use of automated external defibrillators (AED) from the 31st of December 2016, as the Resuscitation Council UK now state that the management of a casualty requiring CPR is to request an AED.

For people who deliver FAW or EFAW training, the change will mean you should ensure that students are trained and assessed on how to use an AED from the 31st of December 2016. The HSE has no issues with training providers who wish to adopt the change early.
