    Are you meeting your first aid obligations?

    APT Health and Safety Training advise Manchester businesses and other organisations on first aid training in all its forms, ensuring they meet both their legal and ethical obligations. When you work with APT, you benefit from our decades of experience helping workers across all industry sectors cultivate safer working environments.

    The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 states that employers in the UK are required to provide “adequate and appropriate facilities, equipment and personnel to ensure all employees are able to receive  first aid attention the moment they are injured or taken ill at work.”

    A crucial part of this responsibility is the organising of first aid training for all relevant staff. When you select APT Health and Safety to advise on and provide this training, you can be assured that you are getting the best possible consultation and first aid training in the Manchester region.  We will ensure you know which members of staff require which training, and to what level, giving you complete peace of mind with regards to your corporate responsibilities with regards to first aid.

    How do I know what is “adequate and appropriate”?

    In practice, these phrases have changing definitions depending on the nature of the working environments in question. The unique work carried out at different organisations will mean a different set of risk factors needing to be considered when assessing what is “adequate and inappropriate”.

    These factors may include: the number of required trained first-aiders at a particular work site (as well as what type training they will need), what the various on-site first aid boxes should contain, and whether there is need for a dedicated first aid room. The assessment and drawing of conclusions on  points such as these is where we come in.

    Below are some additional variables to consider when assessing your First Aid policy:

    • Number of staff
    • Staff working at multi-occupied or shared or sites
    • The nature and distribution of the workforce (i.e. the needs of travelling, on-site and lone workers)
    • Number and type of workplace hazards and risks
    • Historical accidents (both at your business and within your industry generally)
    • Accessibility of emergency medical services from the work site/s
    • Annual leave and absences of first-aiders and appointed persons
