HSE have just published their ebulletin for July. A couple of important issues are highlighted below, however you can find the full document and details from the following link: HSE First Aid eBulletin
1. Telefunken Models HR1 & FA1 Defibrillators - These defibrillators, pads and batteries are no longer certified for use in the UK. If you have one in your workplace please act immediately on the instructions provided by the MHRA.
2. First Aid at Work Training – A Notice For Employers And Training Providers - It has been brought to the attention of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that some organisations seeking to commission First Aid at Work (FAW) training have required the training to be delivered over significantly shorter time periods than those recommended in HSE guidance and with student/trainer ratios that could compromise the effectiveness of the training.
