The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.
The Regulations require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees who are injured or become ill at work.
A first-aid box must be provided at each workplace location, and a first-aid ‘appointed person’ should be available at all times when people are at work. An ‘appointed person’ must be someone who takes charge when someone is injured or falls ill (including calling an ambulance if required) and who looks after the first-aid equipment, e.g. restocking the first-aid box. An appointed person is not necessarily a fully trained first-aider. Practices fall into the category of smaller organisations where there is a low risk of injury, and are not required to have fully trained first-aiders.
