HSE recommends that workplace first-aiders and their employers continue to consider the guidance from the Resuscitation Council UK.
As a minimum, a low-risk workplace such as a small office should have a first-aid box and a person appointed to take charge of first-aid arrangements, such as calling the emergency services if necessary. Employers must provide information about first-aid arrangements to their employees.
Workplaces where there are more significant health and safety risks are more likely to need a trained first-aider faqs. A first-aid needs assessment will help employers decide what first aid arrangements are appropriate for their workplace.
The offshore industry has specific legislation because of remoteness and access to medical expertise.
