First Aid Risk Assessment - Assessing Your First Aid Needs

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations require all employers to make adequate and appropriate provision for first aid in response to an accident or someone falling ill in the workplace. 

Every employer should make an assessment of what the first aid requirements might or should be to meet this standard.  This includes assessing what equipment you might need and what personnel you might need to cover all of the sites and shifts that you work.

The minimum first-aid provision at any workplace is:

a suitably stocked first-aid box and what is suitable depends on your business and your assessment of the risks involved

an appointed person to take charge of first-aid arrangements, more than one if you work a shift pattern

a notice to tell employees who and where the first-aiders or appointed persons are and where the first-aid box is.

Depending upon the results of your assessment you may also need trained first aiders or specialist equipment. Unless you do the assessment, you will not know.

See "First Aid and Health and Safety Law" in our Guidance Section for more information.
