Over 600,000 people are injured at work every year. Workplace first aiders can save lives and help stop minor injuries becoming major ones.
The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to provide equipment, facilities, and people to help their employees if they’re injured or ill at work. The regulations apply to all workplaces, including places with less than five employees and the self-employed.
Employers should assess their workplace to identify their first aid needs, including first aiders and equipment. Our courses help employers meet these needs, with training developed by Lantra and the First Aid Awarding Organisation Forum.
