First Aid, Accidents and Disease Health and Safety Forms
The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 (as amended) require all
employers (or persons in control of premises) to have an appropriate number
of first-aid trained staff and equipment in place, so that if staff or
visitors to the premises are taken ill or involved in an accident, then
help can be provided to them.
The Regulations do not set out the specific numbers of trained personnel
required. A risk assessment of the premises, taking into account what is
done on the premises and the number and type of people who are likely to be
present, should indicate the number of trained personnel required. It is
important to remember s3 HSWA1974, that as the ‘employer/person in control
of the premises’, you will have a duty of care towards everyone who may be
affected by your activities.
This First Aid, Accidents and Disease sub-folder contains a First Aid
Policy, an Accident Reporting Form for either accidents or near misses, a
list of the Injuries, Diseases or Dangerous Occurrences that are reportable
under RIDDOR 2013, and the forms you can use for reporting them. It also
contains a first aid training record and schedule and accident reports.
