The law requires employers and the self employed must ensure immediate medical help is available for anyone who is injured or get ill in a workplace under their control. Every workplace must appoint a person in charge with first aid training, provide an adequately stocked first aid kit, maintain it and give information to everyone in the workplace on what the first aid arrangements are in the event of an accident, injury or illness.
Emergency First Aid at work is covered under the The Health and Safety (First Aid) 1981 Act and details employers responsibilities to provide “adequate and appropriate” facilities in the event that someone is injured or taken ill at work. The legislation applies to all workplaces, regardless of the size of the company. While those who are not classified as employees of the company are not directly covered by the regulations, the HSE strongly recommend that employers take account of everyone who in on their premises to be taken account of when planning a first aid strategy.
