First Aid in the Workplace

Last month we had a question from a Company Owner/Director about first aid in the workplace – was it a legal requirement? Did they have to provide first aid?

For all those that are not aware Employers and businesses (and other PCBUsmust make first-aid arrangements for their workplace so workers can get immediate help if they are injured at work.

First aid requirements will vary from one workplace to the next so one needs to determine the nature of the work and workplace hazards , size and location and the number and composition of workers and other people ( clients, visitors, volunteers etc…)

For practical guidance on the appropriate first aid in the workplace please refer to the Code of Practice below:

• first-aid-code-of-practice-3834
