    Is Your First Aid policy up-to-date?

    APT can advise on all aspects of first aid training and work with you and your employees to help create a safer, better prepared working environment for you and your employees.

    You may or may not be aware that The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 specifies that UK employers need to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to make certain that all employees can receive immediate first aid attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.

    The core of this commitment is the arranging of suitable, high-quality first aid training for all involved. This is where APT come in!


    What does “adequate and appropriate” mean?

    In practice, it means different things for different working environments and depends largely on variables such as the particular circumstances and risks in a specific workplace that may necessitate first aid treatment at some point. These will be different for every business, but factors to consider often include things like: how many trained first-aiders will be needed on a work site and the individual level of each of their training, the contents of the on-site first aid box and also whether a dedicated first aid room is required. We will help assess and draw solid conclusions on all these points.


    What does a First Aid policy assessment typically take into account?:

    • The size of the organisation
    • Employees working on 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 nature of workplace hazards and risks
    • The business (and industry’s) history of accidents
    • Distance and access to emergency medical services from the work site/s
    • Annual leave and absences of first-aiders and appointed persons
