What employers need to do —Advice from the health and Safety Executive.

You Employers must make appropriate first-aid arrangements for your workplace. In doing so they should consider the circumstances of your workplace, workforce and the health and safety risks that may be present to help you decide what arrangements you need to put in place.

Some small low-risk workplaces need to have only a first-aid box and a person appointed to take charge of first-aid arrangements such as calling the emergency services and stocking the first-aid box. The appointed person does not need specific first-aid training. If your workplace has more significant health and safety risks, for example you use machinery or hazardous materials then your employers are more likely to need a trained first-aider. You must provide all employees must be provided with details of the first-aid arrangements

 

First-aid needs assessment

In order to establish what provision for first-aid is required an assessment of the first-aid needs appropriate to the circumstances of your employers business.

This should include consideration of:

the workplace,

the workforce, and

the hazards and risks present.

 

First-aid arrangements

Any arrangements will depend on the outcome of the first-aid needs assessment and the particular circumstances in your workplace at any given time.

 

The findings of the needs assessment should indicate the level of first-aid equipment, facilities and personnel required.

 

As a minimum, you employers must have:-

a suitably stocked first-aid kit

an appointed person to take charge of first-aid arrangements;

information for all employees giving details of first-aid arrangements.

 

Where your needs assessment identifies workplace or workforce issues, or more significant health and safety risks, your employers are likely to need a sufficient number of appropriately trained first aiders and may need to arrange additional equipment and facilities.

 

First-aiders

 

Your employers might decide that you need a first-aider. This is someone who has been trained by a competent first aid training provider in first aid at work, emergency first aid at work, or some other appropriate level of training (identified by your employers needs assessment).

Any accident claim at work should be recorded in an accident book.
