First Aid in the Workplace
Under the provision of The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations, 1981 employers have an obligation to provide their employees with adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and trained personnel to ensure they receive immediate attention if injured or taken ill at work.
The regulations apply to all workplaces, including those with less than 5 employees and the self-employed. Employers are also responsible and have a duty of care towards all visitors and individuals using their facilities.
It is the responsibility of the employers to carry out an assessment of first aid needs to determine what should be provided.
Please feel free to contact us if you need further advice regarding first aid courses or visit the HSE website and see the HSE Guide to First Aid at Work Questions and Answers.
