First Aid Risk Assessment
Health and Safety requires employees to undertake suitable and sufficient risk assessments; part of a risk assessors duties may include assessing the companies / sites first aid arrangements.
Before it can be decided what level of first aid cover, equipment and facilities are required, employers must assess the hazards and the circumstances within their organisation which pose a threat to their employees.
Many small firms will only need to make the minimum first-aid provision. However, there are factors which might make greater provision necessary.
The following check-list covers some of the points you should consider.
•the nature of the work and workplace hazards and risks
•the size of the organisation • the nature of the workforce
•the organisation's history of accidents
•the needs of travelling, remote and lone workers
•the distribution of the workforce
•the remoteness of the site from emergency medical services
•employees working on shared or multi-occupied sites
•annual leave and other absences of first aiders and appointed person
•first-aid provision for non-employees
