First Aid At Work
First Aid At Work
UK law requires that all employers provide adequate training, equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure that any injuries or illnesses at work receive immediate care and attention.
We can provide you with leading health and safety experts who can assess the first aid measures in your workplace and provide you with the full coverage you need to comply with UK law.
Following the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, employers have a legal obligation to ensure that adequate provisions are in place for their employees, should they become ill or injured at work. Should an incident occur and the employer is found guilty of negligence, the employer will face prosecution. To avoid this, it is essential that you ensure your business meets first aid regulations.
First Aid in the Workplace
Under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, employers are required to complete the following:
- Identify the hazards and risks in the workplace
- Determine the size of the organisation and other factors relevant to issuing first aid
- Determine what first aid equipment is needed
- Determine what facilities and how many personnel should be provided.
According to government guidance, first aid must be ‘adequate and appropriate in the circumstances’. Therefore, first aid provisions will vary in every workplace. It is essential that a competent person must assess your first aid requirements as a competent person will have experience and the necessary qualifications to determine the best way to meet first aid regulations in your workplace
