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.
What is ‘adequate and appropriate’ will depend on the circumstances in the workplace. This includes whether trained First Aiders are required, what should be included in a First Aid box and if a First Aid room is required.
In order to produce a Risk Assessment of First Aid needs, consideration of workplace hazards and risks, the size of the organisation and other relevant factors need to be taken into account in order to determine what First Aid equipment, facilities and trained personnel should be provided.
This course will provide detailed information about the considerations and relevant factors in order to determine the needs and requirements and to ultimately produce a Risk Assessment of First Aid needs for the business.
This is a 1 Day course, with a minimum of 6 hours classroom contact time. Dependent on the student’s experience, there may also be some pre or post-course reading.
The course consists of theoretical sessions delivered by your Instructor who will provide a detailed course programme.
