What are the requirements for providing first aid at work?

0

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require an employer to: (1) Determine what first aid provision is necessary. (2) Consider the factors that should be taken into account, such as: • Number of people employed • Risks in the workplace • Layout of the premises Any first-aider should have passed an approved course and be re-tested every three years. Where a first-aider is not required an ‘appointed’ person should be assigned to take charge in the event of an accident e.g. to call an ambulance. Every employer should have at least one first-aid box, which should contain nothing but first-aid materials. First-aid boxes need to be maintained at the level of provision identified through the assessment.
