Frequently asked questions



As an employer how do I know what my First Aid requirement are?

Employers are responsible for completing a first aid assessment to determine their specific needs within their business. They need to make sure that there is either an appointed person to take care of First aid or that there are sufficient numbers of trained first aiders. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that staff are made aware of the First Aid arrangements.


How many first aiders do I need?

It is not laid down how many are needed but from the findings of your assessments you will decide how many first aiders are required. When deciding this you should be mindful of holiday cover, employees that work between sites, and the potential of long term leave.

How often must a first aider complete refresher training?
