Managing First Aid Provision In The Workplace

April 2018

For April Simply Docs have added a new Policy – a Company First Aid Policy. 

All employers have a legal duty to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This First Aid Policy sets out how your Company intends to manage the provision of first aid.

As with most health and safety regulations there are requirements for training and providing information to your staff. This Company First Aid Policy allows you to formally state that you will provide training to those who require it, with updates as needed. It covers the need to tell the rest of your staff who the First Aiders are, and where they will be found.

In short, this new Policy is designed to allow you to formalise your procedures around your provision of first aid within your workplace, which will help you to maintain a safer working environment and will provide an additional focus on good legal compliance.
