Whether a sole trader or public-sector business, all employers have a legal duty to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or are taken ill at work. This legislation is laid out in Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 – updated 2015.
It doesn’t matter whether the injury or illness is caused by the work they do, what is important is that they receive immediate attention and that an ambulance is called in serious cases. However, please remember that the ambulance will not arrive instantaneously, and it is vital to know how to give immediate and appropriate first aid and stabilise the casualty whilst waiting for the emergency services to arrive. Therefore, it is essential that some or all of your employees are First Aid trained.
