How many First Aiders do I need?

Determining how many First Aiders your business requires is not only important to ensure your business is legislatively compliant but to also ensure the safety and well being of your employees.  

Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 requires that adequate first aid provision, equipment and facilities are available. What constitutes ‘adequate’ is determined by your business type, size and nature of your work. You may also need to consider; remote and lone workers, shift working patterns and provision for non-employees (i.e. general public).
