What first aid provision does my business require?

As an employer, you are responsible for making sure that your employees receive immediate attention if they are taken ill or are injured at work. Accidents and illness can happen at any time and first aid can save lives and prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones.

But how do you know what level of training or first aid provision your business needs?

In order to establish what provision for first-aid is required you should make an assessment of the first-aid needs appropriate to the circumstances of your business;

  • the nature of the work you do

  • workplace hazards and risks (including specific hazards requiring special arrangements)

  • the nature and size of your workforce

  • the work patterns of your staff

  • holiday and other absences of those who will be first-aiders and appointed persons

  • your organisation's history of accidents or incidents

You, as an employer, are best placed to understand the exact nature of your workplace and decide what you need to provide. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is there to help guide you in this process.

Once you've made a assessment for the first aid needs of your business, get in touch with us to provide you with HSE recognised workplace qualifications.
