First Aid Needs Assessment


The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require you to provide adequate and appropriate first-aid equipment, facilities and people so your employees can be given immediate help if they are injured or taken ill at work.

What is ‘adequate and appropriate’ will depend on the circumstances in your workplace and you should assess what your first-aid needs are.

The minimum first-aid provision on any work site is:

  • ˜ a suitably stocked first-aid kit;

  • ˜ an appointed person to take charge of first-aid arrangements;˜ 

  • information for employees about first-aid arrangements.

It is important to remember that accidents and illness can happen at any time. Provision for first aid needs to be available at all times people are at work.
