First Aid at Work
First aid can save lives and prevent minor injuries becoming major ones and covers the initial management of any injury or illness.
Under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 all workplaces must make provision for first aid for employees, to be readily available at all times, including the duty to:
- Provide adequate and appropriate first aid equipment and facilities
- Provide an adequate and appropriate number of first aid personnel.
- Inform employees of first aid arrangements.
Managers can get more information in the First Aid at Work Guidance
