Employers' legal duties. The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.

 

For low risk workplaces with 25-50 people, there should be at least one first aider who holds an Emergency First Aid at Work certificate, with another First-Aider per 100

 

EFAW 6hrs training is dedicated for most businesses whose risk assessment has identified that there is no requirement for a fully trained first aider for their workplace.
