Duration: 15 Minutes

This First Aid Requirements and RIDDOR course is designed to be used by both managers and employers to help decide what first aid personnel they require – it is NOT a First Aid training course.

It explains what First Aid cover you should have and what has to be reported under RIDDOR, who should do it and how.


First aid can save lives and prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones, so having people with the right training in the right places is essential for the safety of your staff. RIDDOR stands for Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 – these 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 businesses. Make sure you understand your responsibilities and know how to report to RIDDOR with our First Aid Requirements and RIDDOR Training.


This training programme is designed to be used in conjunction with our First Aid Appointed Person Training. This title is specifically for work environments with a relatively small number of employees, and where the risks are low.

First Aid Requirements and RIDDOR – Course Contents

1. Health and Safety Requirements

First aid is all about dealing with an illness or injury quickly. But the number of first aiders and their level of training depends on how much risk there is, who the employees are and how many people  work in a particular area.

In this section we look at how you decide what is needed in your workplace. And we look at what training they need.

2. What is RIDDOR?

RIDDOR stands for the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations.


Certain injuries and illnesses MUST be reported to RIDDOR and in this section we look at what needs to be reported and how this is done.


This section includes Reportable Injuries, Occupational Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences.
