First Aid at Work. What The Law Says.....

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed.

What is 'adequate and appropriate' will depend on the circumstances in the workplace. This includes whether trained first-aiders are needed, what should be included in a first-aid box and if a first-aid room is required. Employers should carry out an assessment of first-aid needs to determine what to provide.

The Regulations do not place a legal duty on employers to make first-aid provision for non-employees such as the public or children in schools. However, HSE strongly recommends that non-employees are included in an assessment of first-aid needs and that provision is made for them.

Recently did the first aid course with Virtus and it was brilliant. Really informative, learnt so much and had fun while doing it. Vic was great and Andy and the team really looked after us all day. Highly recommend!

Nicola Munnery, Lakin & Co

The first aid training course provided by Virtus was very informative. It struck just the right balance between theory & practice. The gentleman leading the training was very knowledgable & enthusiastic. He was more than happy to act out situations and be used as a 'dummy' especially when we were learning practical elements such as how to put someone in a recovery position. I walked away from the training with the confidence that I had learnt the basic skills to provide first aid to someone should the need arise.
