First Aid

First
Aid

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.

Employers must make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. It doesn’t matter whether the injury or illness is caused by the work they do, it is important that they receive immediate attention and if necessary an ambulance is called.

First aid can save lives and prevent minor injuries becoming serious ones. Correct First-aid provision throughout the workplace should cover the arrangements that need to be made to manage injuries or illness occurring in the workplace.
