As an employer, you have a duty of care to both employees and customers, not only to protect them, but also to provide adequate support in the event of an emergency.
Yet, according to a recent survey by St John Ambulance, nearly two-thirds of people (59%) wouldn’t feel confident enough to try to save a life.
The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, require you to provide equipment, facilities and personnel to allow first aid to be given to your employees if they fall ill at work.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) also strongly recommends the provision of first aid for members of the public who visit your premises. The first aider on your premises should hold a current Emergency First Aid at Work Certificate.
We can offer appointed person and first aid training, in-house and tailored to the workplace and specific job roles.
