The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 place a general duty on employers to provide first-aid treatment to employees within the workplace environment. The employer has overall responsibility for the risk assessment (assessment of first-aid need) that will establish the level of first-aid cover required. If, having assessed first-aid needs, an employer decides to appoint first aiders, the first aiders must have a valid certificate of competence.
Who is it for?
