+ 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.

First Aid Assessment Needs

Testimonial

 

We have been using 2nd chance First Aid for all our first aid / Epi-pen courses for the last 6 years. 
 
After completing 1st aid training every 3 years for the last 20 years I personally found some training centre's in the past have become monotonous and strained in there approach to teaching 1st aid. With all trainee's minds focusing not on the holistic approach to 1st aid - but the pass or fail re-enactment test at the end of the course.
 
Thankfully with 2nd chance 1st aid the course is held at a venue of your choice - this helps in keeping a calm environment which inevitably helps staff  retain information. Neil ensures the course is suitably tailored to the group and ensures all his information and teaching techniques are currently endorsed practices. 
 
1st aid training is a serious training qualification, however my staff (especially new to child care) have remembered lots of detailed information due to the fun yet importantly informative way Neil teaches.
 
Roll on March 2012 when we will be seeing Neil again.
