WorkSafe operate an ongoing quality assurance system to ensure first aid trainers and organisations can meet the ‘Due Diligence’ checks required by the HSE when selecting a first aid training provider. This system requires instructors to undertake an annual renewal process and comply with our quality control systems including verification visits and audits.
