First Aid at Work


Accidents do occur at work, even in the most safety concious organisations, and employees, contractors, visitors etc., may also become ill whilst on your premises.  It makes sense for organisations to apply some degree of preventative and control measures, so to be as far as is reasonably practicable ready for any such occurrences.  The amount of time and effort applied to these control measures for the large part will be governed by the type of industry and the hazardousness of the workplace.


The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 where introduced in the UK to ensure that at least a minimum of first aid controls were available within the workplace. (also see The Health and Safety (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2002).


Further guidance is also given in the Approved Code of Practice ACOP L74 The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981. Guidance on Regulation. Which includes within Appendix 3 the suggested numbers of first-aid personnel to be available at all times people are at work.
