Legislation Information

Employers have an obligation under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and Approved Code of Practice (ACOP L74, Second Edition) to make adequate and appropriate first aid provision for their workforce. It is recommended that someone is able to undertake first aid duties at all times when people are at work.  Every place of work should have undertaken a risk assessment to decide the need for first aid in their workplace.  An Employer should have thought about the types of injuries and illness that have previously occurred or may occur in the future if their current activities may change.
