  • If the training period for first aiders exceeded – what should be done?

    According to DGUV regulation 1, principles of prevention ‚ the employer or organisation is to ensure that the first aider receives further training every two years.

    Should the training period may be exceeded due to the current situation, there is now a certain scope for action. Currently,  first aiders with ‚expired’ training  can be utilised within the work place. This permissible excess period is an individual decision made by the company (management, company doctor).

    To assist with this decision, the experience of the first aider, their area of application, however even with long term and experienced first aiders, the period of 2.5 years should not be exceeded.

    After this period of time, the employee should participate in a first aid training course.
