Minimum Standards of Provision in the Workplace.

Minimum Standards of Provision


In offices and other low risk workplaces:

  • a trained first aider may not be necessary for fewer than 50 employees, although there must be at least one appointee to take charge in an emergency;
  • a first aid room may not be necessary for fewer than 400 employees. Instead sufficient first aid boxes or travelling kits would be required.

In workplaces with greater risks there should be:

  • a minimum of one first aider with approved training per 50 employees (or fraction of 50);
  • at least one suitably equipped first aid room.
