FIRST AID FOR 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.
We offer a full range of First aid at Work courses which will assist you in ensuring you can meet your requirement.
It is worth pointing out that the duty of the employer to ensure that any training provider that they select for the purposes of first-aid training is competent to deliver that training.
As the employer, you are required to carry out due diligence (reasonable enquiry or investigation) into how a provider will deliver the training you require.
To assist with this pkg training first aid courses meets the requirement as set out in the HSE – A guide for employers on choosing First Aid Trainers.
