First aid at work

The board must ensure that adequate first aid equipment is provided for the workplace and that all workers have access to equipment and facilities for administering first aid.

The board must also ensure that an adequate number of workers are trained to administer first aid or that workers have access to an adequate number of other persons who have been trained to administer first aid.

Further information on first aid can be found in the Health and Safety at Work (General Risk and Workplace Management) Regulations 2016
