+ What First Aid provision do I need for my employees in the workplace?

 

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require you to provide adequate and appropriate first aid equipment, facilities and people so your employees can be given immediate help if they are injured or taken ill at work.

What is 'adequate and appropriate' will depend on the circumstances in your workplace and you should assess what your first aid needs are.

The Minimum first aid provision on any work site is:

  • A suitably stocked first aid kit
  • An appointed person to take charge of first aid arrangements
  • Information for employees about first aid arrangements

Some small workplaces may only need the minimum provision. However, there are factors that might mean you need greater provision.

The factors below should be considered when conducting your first aid risk assessment:

  • Hazards
  • Number of Employees
  • Previous Accident Record in the Workplace
  • Working Arrangement
  • Non-Employees

Please use the First Aid Needs Assessment flowchart below to help determine the level of First Aid cover you need in your workplace.

Testimonial

 

Student Feedback Forms 14 Hour Paediatric First Aid Course 16th & 23rd May 2011

Repeating the activities helped me to remember what to do. Lots to do so days passed quickly. Tutor made sure we understood everything. I really enjoyed that two days- fun. Excellent teaching and load of practical stuff. Much better than St John's. The tutor was good and gave us loads of hands on experience.
