Become a First Aider and you’ll make a real difference to the well-being of your colleagues. As a qualified First Aider you’ll have the essential skills to handle any First Aid situation, from minor slips and trips to the most serious of incidents.
First Aid provision in the workplace saves lives. It can prevent minor problems or injuries from becoming major ones. It can help employers reduce costs from injury. And it is a legal obligation on every single employer to make sure that their employees receive the right First Aid care in the workplace.
The Legal Obligation: employers have an obligation under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and Approved Code of Practice (ACOP L74) to make adequate and appropriate First Aid Provision for their workforce. It is recommended that someone is able to under take First Aid duties at all times when people are at work.
The Risk Assessment: each employer should carry out its own risk assessment to establish what level of First Aid cover is required at each location.
