(Use the findings of your general risk assessment and take account of any parts of your workplace with different work activities/hazards that may require different levels of first-aid provision.)
Does your workplace have low-level hazards, e.g. the ones you might find in offices and shops?
The minimum provision is: an appointed person to take charge of first-aid arrangements; a suitably stocked first-aid kit.
Does your workplace have higher-level hazards, such as chemicals or dangerous machinery? Do your work activities involve special hazards, such as hydrofluoric acid or confined spaces?
You should consider: providing first-aiders; additional training for first-aiders to deal with injuries caused by special hazards; additional first-aid equipment; precise location of first-aid equipment; providing a first-aid room; informing the emergency services in advance.
How many people are employed on site?
The minimum provision is: an appointed person to take charge of first-aid arrangements; a suitably stocked first-aid box. Depending on your circumstances, you should consider providing: first-aiders; additional first-aid equipment; a first-aid room.
Are there inexperienced workers on site (including those on ‘work experience’), or employees with disabilities or particular health problems, elderly, young?
You should consider: additional training for first-aiders; additional first-aid equipment; location of first-aid equipment.
Accidents and ill-health records
What injuries and illness have occurred in your workplace and where did they happen?
Make sure your first-aid provision caters for the type of injuries and illness that might occur in your workplace. Monitor accidents and ill health, and review your first-aid provision as appropriate.
