FOR BUSINESS

Why not let me take all the hassle of your first aid business requirements?

I can provide a full service to busy, successful  companies. In most cases, my experience proves that many organisations are either not aware of, or are unsure of, the ratios and levels of training needed to conform with H.S.E (First Aid) Regulations 1981 (Guidance doc. L74 and GEIS).

Let me help!…

  • Ensure your service is in line with current regulations.
  • Train all of your staff.
  • Provide full back up and support when necessary.
  • Notify both you and your staff of renewal dates or new requirements.
  • Help you purchase equipment.

All employers have a legal obligation under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 (Guidance doc. L74 and GEIS) to make a sufficient and appropriate provision of First Aid within the work place.

You should under the recommendations ensure that is someone in your company that is able to undertake first aid at any time. Ian is available to assist you with any ‘risk assessment ‘to ensure that you have the correct cover in place.

How many first aiders do you need?

The number of first aiders and appointed persons depends on the level of risk, the number of staff and other factors such as the number of shifts and sites you operate. Read our document on Ratio Requirements and have a look at the Health and Safety Executive (HSE)  guidance

The HSE leaflet First aid at work: Your questions answered (PDF, 207KB) provides further information on the number of first aiders depending on the level of risk identified.

Risk category: low (e.g. shops, offices and libraries)

  • Fewer than 50 employees: at least one appointed person.
  • 50-100 employees: at least one first aider.
  • More than 100 employees: one additional first aider for every 100 employed.

Risk category: medium (e.g. light engineering, food processing plants and warehouses)

  • Fewer than 20 employees: at least one appointed person.
  • 20 to 100 employees: at least one first aider.
  • More than 100 employees: one additional first aider for every 100 employed.

Risk category: high (e.g. construction sites, chemicals manufacture and work with dangerous machinery)
