First Aid Risk Assessment
The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide “adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and trained personnel”, to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.
This is dependant and specific to each individual workplace and includes whether trained first aiders are needed, how many first aid kits are required and what should be included within a first aid box. Each organisation should therefore complete a first aid needs assessment to determine their specific requirements and to ensure they’re complying with the regulatory requirements.
In order to produce a first aid needs assessment the organisation should consider what workplace hazards exist and the risk of these hazards occurring, the size of the organisation and other relevant factors to determine what equipment, facilities and level of training should be provided.
This course will provide detailed information about considerations and relevant factors in order to produce a risk assessment of first aid needs.
