First Aid At Work

 The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work . The level of this provision is dependent upon the type of work performed , the occupational environment and the number of employees

Although there is no legal requirement to provide first aid for members of the public through your business or facilities, there is always a moral obligation to provide aid wherever possible.

 First Aid is an essential process for any person suffering from an illness or injury and for many, it is the entry point into our healthcare system. The aptitude and ability of a first aider can have massive effects on a casualty including recovery time (time off work) and psychological impact of the underlying injury. In the worst case scenario, appropriate first aid provision can be lifesaving or life preserving until definitive medical care can be obtained.
