ARE YOU A 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. First aid training can save lives and prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones with the right training.

WHAT YOU MUST ENSURE AS A EMPLOYER REGARDING FIRST AID TRAINING

You must make appropriate first-aid arrangements for your workplace. In doing so you 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 first aid trained person appointed to take charge of first-aid arrangements such as calling the emergency services and stocking the first-aid box. If your workplace has more significant health and safety risks, for example you use machinery or hazardous materials then you are more likely to need more trained first training.

You must provide all your employees with details of the first-aid arrangements.
