When it comes to first aid in the workplace, the same principles apply to small businesses with only a few employees, as they do to companies with a bigger workforce spread across multiple locations. In both instances, there must be plans in place to ensure the day-to-day working operation complies with health and safety regulations, protecting employees from possible injuries and reacting to sudden illness.
By law, every company in the UK must have an appropriately stocked first aid kit and it’s highly recommended every company must have trained first aiders among its workforce.
Depending on the needs of a workplace, there may be an appointed first-aider assigned to handle all first aid matters in the workplace. This person will undergo sufficient training and handle all first aid duties on the premises, including:
- Maintaining first aid equipment and facilities
- Providing basic medical care and attention to injured persons
- Calling the emergency services when required
