Are you Covered

In any company, when deciding on the number and type of First Aid personal, employers need to consider

Workplace hazards & risk

Size of the organisation

History of accidents in the organisation

Nature and distribution of the workforce

Remoteness of the site from emergency Medical services

Annual leave & other absences of First Aid trained staff

Whilst the regulations do not give specific personal numbers, the following guidance from the

Health & safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 does give suggested numbers of First Aid personnel.
