Workplace First Aid Courses
Making sure your workplace is compliant with HSE Regulations
The formal bit that you need to know is that the ‘Health and Safety ‘First Aid at Work’ Regulations (INDG214)’ require employers to enable first aid to be given to employees if they are injured or become ill at work. Every employer should carry out an assessment of first aid needs, which should be reviewed at least annually and all staff must be informed of the arrangements.
WHICH BEST DESCRIBES YOUR WORKPLACE?
High Hazard workplaces e.g. light engineering and assembly work, food processing, warehousing, extensive work with dangerous machinery, sharp instruments, construction, chemical manufacture or dangerous animals.
Lower Hazard workplaces include offices, small shops, libraries, and businesses without any particular dangers like machinery or lots of manual handling.
