Why do we have to do First Aid in the workplace?

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.

 

These Regulations apply to all workplaces, including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed.

 

What is ‘adequate and appropriate’ will depend on the circumstances in the workplace. This includes whether trained first-aiders are needed, what should be included in a first-aid box and if a first-aid room is required.

 

Employers are required to carry out an assessment of first-aid needs to determine what to provide.
