As an employer, do I have to provide first aid facilities for my employees?

The Health and Safety (first aid) Regulations 1981 requires employers to have made provisions for first aid in their workplaces taking into account equipment, facilities and personnel. What is adequate will depend on the circumstances in your workplace but must include at least:

  • a suitably stocked first aid box
  • an appointed person to take charge of first aid arrangements
  • provision at all times when people are working.
