Fully Booked

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1982 require you to provide adequate and appropriate  first-aid equipment, facilities and people so your employees can be given immediate help if they are injured or taken ill at work.

What is ‘adequate and appropriate’ will depend on the circumstances in your workplace and you should assess what your first-aid needs are.

The minimum first-aid provision on any work site is:

  • a suitably stocked first-aid box.
  • an appointed person to take charge of first-aid arrangements.
  • information for employees about first-aid arrangements.

It is important to remember that accidents and illness can happen at any time. First-aid provision needs to be available at all times people are at work.
