How to Make a First Aid Kit
First aid kits come in different sizes, for different purposes and the contents of a first aid kit may be adjusted for specific activities, according to the Red Cross. Consider packing a first aid kit to keep in your car, your home or your work space.
Before you begin gathering the items needed in a first aid kit, consider where you plan to put it between uses. For example, if it’s going in your car’s glove box, you will need a much smaller case or bag to hold your first aid supplies than you would need if they’re going in the trunk or on a shelf in your closet. Plastic storage bins, backpacks and zippered tote bags are all items that are suitable for use as a first aid kit.
Pain Relievers to Include in a First Aid Kit
Pain relievers are some common items for a first aid kit. Packets of aspirin are a common recommendation, and other pain relievers your family typically uses, such as ibuprofen, antidiarrheal medications and allergy medications, can also be included. Pain-relieving gels for dental injuries may also be useful in an emergency kit. A space blanket is also recommended for emergency kits, because the design ensures it doesn’t take up a lot of space in your kit, according to the Red Cross.
Supplies for Covering Wounds
Wound covering supplies are among the most basic first aid kit contents. Include adhesive bandages of different sizes, sterile pads of different sizes, medical-grade adhesive tape and an elastic bandage, according to Kids Health. Roller bandages and compress dressing are also useful, and butterfly bandages don’t take up much space and are useful for closing cut skin.
Useful Emergency Kit Supplies
In addition to the basics that make up the first aid kit requirements, such as bandages, pain relievers and antibiotic creams, there are some other useful items that should be in a first aid kit if space allows, according to the Red Cross. Things like scissors to cut bandages and tweezers to pick things out of wounds are useful. A flashlight and a non-mercury thermometer are helpful additions to a kit. Also consider adding latex gloves and a breathing barrier.
Medications and Phone Numbers
Along with a summary of first aid kit instructions that tell people how to use the emergency supplies, include any medications you or a family member take under a doctor’s prescription, according to the Red Cross. Also include a written list of emergency phone numbers. That way, the person administering first aid is under intense stress, all the information required will be handy and help can be called as quickly as possible.

There are many benefits of on site first aid training, including: Customised training: On site training allows the trainer to tailor the course to the specific needs of the workplace or organisation, taking into account the unique risks and hazards that are present. Convenient and cost-effective: On site training eliminates the need for employees to travel to a training centre, which saves time and money. It also allows businesses to train a larger number of staff at one time, which can be more cost-effective. Familiar environment: Employees are able to train in a familiar environment, which can reduce anxiety and improve their ability to absorb and retain information. Practical scenarios: On site training allows for practical scenarios to be created that are specific to the workplace or organisation, giving employees the opportunity to practice first aid skills in a realistic setting. Team building: On site training provides an opportunity for employees to work together and build relationships, which can improve teamwork and communication in the workplace. Compliance: On site training ensures that the workplace is compliant with regulations and requirements related to first aid and health and safety. Overall, on site first aid training is a convenient, cost-effective and practical way to ensure that employees have the skills and knowledge they need to respond to emergencies in the workplace.
First aid is the initial medical care given to someone who is sick or injured before they receive professional medical treatment. It involves simple procedures like applying a bandage to a cut or helping a choking patient. In a life-threatening situation, calling an ambulance is crucial to ensure prompt medical attention. Hospitals and other health facilities are equipped to handle more severe illnesses and injuries, and medical professionals can provide more comprehensive treatment to ensure the best outcome for the patient. First aid is a critical component of overall health and well-being, and everyone should have basic knowledge of how to provide it.
Becoming a qualified first aider can bring many benefits, both personally and professionally. Here are some of the reasons why someone might want to become a qualified first aider: Save lives: The ability to provide immediate assistance in a medical emergency can literally mean the difference between life and death. Help others: Being a qualified first aider means that you can help others who may be in distress or need medical assistance. Increase employability: Having a first aid qualification can make a person more employable, as many employers require staff to have first aid training. Be a role model : Being a qualified first aider can inspire others to learn first aid skills and become more safety-conscious. Gain confidence: Knowing how to respond in an emergency can give a person greater confidence in their abilities and can help them feel more prepared for unexpected situations. Develop skills: First aid training can develop skills such as communication, problem-solving, and decision-making, which can be valuable in many areas of life. Improve safety: Qualified first aiders can help to improve safety in their workplace, school or community by being able to recognise potential hazards and take appropriate action. Overall, becoming a qualified first aider can be a rewarding and empowering experience that can help a person to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

First aid at work course, £ 160 +vat, 6 hours e-learning + 2 days practical.
Our first aid at work course is available at a venue near you, nationwide. Students that complete a workplace first aid course will receive a first aid at work qualification accredited by the FAIB. Your first aid at work certificate will be valid for 3 years. First Aid at Work training can be delivered on-site at your workplace or at one of our national training venues.
Our Blended First Aid at Work course combines 2 Days of hands-on training with 6 hours of eLearning at home or work.
Prior to the practical day, you will complete our web-based, interactive, and user-friendly eLearning module. Learners can access the module as many times as they need to using a computer, laptop, tablet, or phone.
The face-to-face training day lasts 2 days and is designed to maximise recall and provide learners with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to act effectively in first aid emergencies.
Why undertake blended learning?
Online blended learning allows the learner to undertake small modules during any downtime they have at work which reduces their classroom based training to 2 days, meaning less time off work which is more efficient for employers.
Our First Aid at Work Course runs from 9:00 – 16:00.
The FAW training syllabus covers some important general first aid topics, including:
- What are the roles and responsibilities of the first aider?
- How should incidents be recorded and reported using a Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) form?
- What should a first aid kit contain?
- In a first aid emergency, how should you assess the situation and respond?
We also offer the emergency first aid at work course , as well as a range of first aid courses .
For group bookings, we can deliver this course on site at your venue .
A 3-day First Aid at Work course covers comprehensive training for people to become a qualified first-aider at work. Some of the topics that may be covered in this course include:
- Understanding the role of a first-aider in the workplace
- Basic Life Support (BLS) including CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
- Management of an unresponsive casualty
- Use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator)

First Aid at Work Certificate
Our first aid at work certificate is accredited by the First Aid Industry Body (FAIB), so you can rest assured you and your team are in good hands.
First Aid at Work Qualification
The first aid at work qualifications required in the workplace will depend entirely on the level of risks your team encounters. Most office-based businesses, for instance, may not require more than EFAW qualifications. A high-risk environment, such as the construction sector, will benefit from FAW training .
Participants are assessed during the session and can receive their qualifications at the end of the training as long as they can demonstrate what they have learnt.
There are no requirements for this first aid at work course .
Some of our clients who trust us with their training:
Do my employees need this course.
Your employees need the full FAW qualification if the outcome of your first aid risk assessment determines that you require first aiders with more than emergency first aid skills. For less risky business environments, you may only need your first aiders to have received the EFAW qualification .
FAW exams and assessment
As well as being assessed by the trainer throughout the three-day first aid at work course, learners will take a final assessment. Successful candidates will receive an FAIB certificate.
The First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) Approve, Monitor and Regulate its Training Providers and Trainers/Assessors. Consequently, the First Aid certificates that are issued under FAIB are recognised, acknowledged and accepted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Department for Education (DfE).
Other relevant information
Learners must be physically able to carry out the procedures required to meet HSE assessment criteria.
This course complies with Health and Safety (first aid) Regulations 1981 and updates learners of any change in practice and guidelines.
Very positive feedback from all students who were on the first aid at work training, great teachers and they made the topic interesting and easy to understand.
Frequently asked questions, how long is a first aid at work certificate valid for.
A first aid at work certificate is valid for three years and entitles the holder to act as a workplace first aider during that time. Once the certificate expires, the individual is no longer qualified to perform this role, and the employer may be in breach of their duty to provide adequate first aid provision in accordance with their risk assessment. Despite the three-year validity period, studies show that first aid skills can deteriorate in as little as six months, a phenomenon known as "skills fade." As a result, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) strongly advises first responders to take an annual refresher course to maintain their proficiency.
What is the difference between a first aid at work course and an emergency first aid at work course?
The first aid at work course is intended for employers who work in high-risk environments or for larger organisations with a lower level of hazard, as determined by their risk assessment. The emergency first aid at work course covers a narrower range of first aid techniques than the first aid at work course. Employers should provide their first aiders with the first aid at work course if the risk assessment identifies that employees are at risk of specific injuries or conditions such as fractures, burns, or anaphylactic shock.
How do I become a certified first aider?
To become a certified first aider, you must complete a first aid at work or an emergency first aid at work course, which includes both theoretical and practical assessments. If a person's first aid certificate is about to expire, they can renew it by taking a requalification course.
Is it possible to fail a first aid course at work?
To work as a first aider in the workplace, one must demonstrate that they have the knowledge and skills to manage a wide range of first aid incidents. Individuals who fail to demonstrate competence in a first aid at work course will not be certified.
How often should I recertify in first aid?
A certificate for first aid at work or emergency first aid at work is valid for three years. Before the certificate expires, the first aider must attend a requalification course or redo the emergency first aid at work. However, because "skills fade," it is recommended that first responders refresh their knowledge and skills on an annual basis.
How many first aiders do I require?
The number of first aiders required is determined by the size of the workforce, the level of hazard presented by the operations, the layout and size of the workplace, and work patterns. To determine the appropriate number of first aiders, a thorough risk assessment is required. As a general rule, employers in high-risk industries should have one first aider with a first aid at work certificate on site at all times for every 50 employees. The general rule for low-hazard industries is one first aider for every 25 employees, with an additional first aider for every 100 employees above that. Employers who have multi-use sites or hazards must ensure that there are enough trained first aiders available throughout the workplace, including shifts and public areas. The HSE advises considering the potential risks to members of the public on the premises.
What distinguishes a first aider from an appointed person?
An appointed person is in charge of managing the first aid arrangements, which includes maintaining first aid equipment and calling emergency services in the event of an incident. They are not, however, trained to provide first aid and are only suitable for low-risk workplaces with a small workforce. A first aider, on the other hand, is trained and assessed to provide first aid in the event of an incident.
Should my employer pay me more for being a first aider?
In the UK, employers are not legally required to pay their employees more for being a first aider. However, it is common for employers to offer additional pay or benefits to employees who undertake the role of a first aider. This may include paying for the training required to become a first aider, providing additional paid time off to attend training or carry out first aid duties, or offering a bonus or salary increase for taking on the additional responsibility. Employers have a duty of care to their employees and must provide adequate first aid provisions in the workplace. This includes ensuring that there are enough trained first aiders available to provide immediate assistance in the event of an accident or injury. If you are unsure whether your employer offers any additional pay or benefits for being a first aider, you should speak to your HR department or line manager for further information.
Is first aid at work a level 3?
Some first aid at work courses are level 3 qualifications, but this is not mandatory. The content of the course must meet certain requirements set by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in order to qualify as a first aid at work course. The HSE sets the syllabus for the course and specifies the duration, content, and assessment criteria for the training. For example, our first aid at work course is accredited by the FAIB, so it meets the requirements set by the HSE, therefore a level 3 is not necessary.
What happens if someone fails their FAW qualifications?
As mentioned, it is important to understand that FAW qualifications are learned through practice over the course of the training. Employees do not have to worry about requiring additional learning time that might affect their productivity in the workplace. Generally, participants who can demonstrate the first aid skills taught during the training receive the certification at the end. For this purpose, our training sessions include specialist equipment such as dummies, defibrillators, first aid boxes, etc. to ensure that your team can practice and learn in real time. If someone’s training is over 3-year-old, we recommend attending a new first aid at work course to refresh their skills and stay up to date with the latest regulations. If you have any queries about booking a first aid at work course for your employees or arranging for a visit to your site, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team of experts. We are available to help you Monday to Friday between 8:30 AM and 5 PM, 08081696423.
What Are An Employer’s Responsibilities Under The First Aid At Work Legislation?
In the UK, the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) is a government agency that oversees the regulation and enforcement of health, safety, and welfare in the workplace. One of those regulations is The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. The regulations are better known as the ‘First Aid at Work Legislation’. In a nutshell, the legislation details how employers have a legal obligation to ensure the immediate care of employees that get injured or become ill while they’re at work. HSE places the onus for duty of care on the employer and requires workplaces to provide first aid care to sick and injured personnel. However, what confuses many employers is the regulations don’t stipulate what the requirements for each unique working environment are. To that end, the employer must work out for themselves which first aid provisions they must put in place for the safety and welfare of staff. This page describes more about the First Aid at Work Legislation and what you as an employer must do.
What is the legal requirement for FAW?
As an employer, you want to ensure your staff is safe while providing services for you. To that end, you’ll no doubt be wondering how to comply with the legislation? First of all, you need to do a thorough risk assessment across each of your sites. A risk assessment identifies how likely employees are to injure themselves during their work. Next, you’ll need to provide at least one first aid kit to treat sick or injured staff. The legislation doesn’t specify what you should have in the kit. But, it does state the contents should treat likely injuries or illnesses sustained from the causes in your risk assessments. Finally, you’ll need an ‘appointed person’ that is in charge of provisioning first aid care and treatment, even if your business or organisation doesn’t need a specific first-aider. When it comes to determining your first aid kit and appointed person needs, you must take the following into account: How many employees work at each of your sites; Pre-existing conditions and illnesses that your employees have; Number of visitors to each of your premises; Typical hazards found in any workplace, not just the ones specific to yours; HSE’s specific guidance for your business or organisation’s industry. HSE has published a document online that you can review to learn more about the common questions surrounding first aid at work legislation.
Why is the FAW legislation so important?
The legislation is part of a series of measures put in place from the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. It describes the essential aspects of first aid that all employers need to adhere to, irrespective of how small or large the business, organisation, or premises is. As you’ve no doubt gathered by now, there were no legal workplace requirements before the HSE’s first aid regulations in 1981. Workplace injuries and illnesses are sadly commonplace, and according to HSE’s own compiled statistics for 2018 to 2019: 581,000 people sustained an injury at work; 1.4 million people experience work-related illnesses; 2,526 workers contracted mesothelioma after exposure to asbestos. You may assume that the legislation only deals with the types of first aid equipment needed in the workplace. But, the aim of The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 is also to manage the provision of requirements and training for first-aiders. Definition of ‘adequate and appropriate’ in the legislation When you read through the legislation, you’ll come across regulation 3 which states that employers must provide ‘adequate and appropriate’ first aid equipment and facilities. You’ll come across those two words frequently in the legislation. But what exactly do they mean? As you can appreciate, each employer’s working environment is different and comes with different sets of risks. For example, office staff will have different risks in their workplace compared to builders working on construction sites. The legislation uses the words ‘adequate and appropriate’ because it’s up to employers to carry out risk assessments of their workplaces. And once they’ve done that, they must put in place first aid measures that match those risks.

Why train in-house / on-site?
If you have a group to train and have the space available, then it more than often makes sense to run it in-house.
- SAVE MONEY – if you have a group to train, you can often make significant cost savings.
- FLEXIBLE – dates, times, and location for training is arranged to suit you.
- TAILORED – training can be bespoke and designed around your organisation’s needs.
- LESS DISRUPTIVE – employees remain on-site, meaning less travel and they are ready to get back to work afterwards.

What is Emergency First Aid At Work?
Emergency first aid at work level 2 (EFAW) is a one-day course that covers the basics of first aid treatment in an emergency situation, such as an incident or accident in the workplace, or the sudden illness of a colleague or customer.
The course is taught by experienced, qualified trainers, and can be delivered either on site at your place of work, or as an open course at a local training venue.
The emergency first aid at work level 2 course leads to a nationally recognised qualification that is valid for three years, even if you change employer.
Why is Emergency First Aid At Work training important?
It equips employees with the skills and knowledge to provide initial emergency care in the event of an injury or illness in the workplace. It helps to ensure that prompt and appropriate action is taken to minimize the impact of an injury or illness, and can potentially save lives. Having trained first aiders on site can also help to create a safer working environment and promote a culture of health and safety in the workplace. Additionally, employers have a legal obligation to provide adequate first aid provision in the workplace, and emergency first aid at work training is one way to meet this requirement
Who should take Emergency First Aid At Work training?
This course is designed for appointed first aiders in low risk workplaces, such as offices and retail establishments where there are small numbers of staff, typically between 25 and 50 workers.
Low risk environments with more than 50 workers should consider the 3-day First Aid at Work course.
The emergency first aid at work level 2 course will give you the knowledge and skills you need to deal appropriately with casualties, reducing the impact of injuries and illnesses, and potentially saving lives.
The course is also designed to enable employers to meet their first aid obligations under current health and safety law, and to create a safe place of work for employees.
Can anybody take an Emergency First Aid course?
There are no pre-requisites for attending an emergency first aid at work level 2 course. The course is open to all employees over the age of 16 who are physically able to perform the required and assessed tasks, including resuscitation.
Special provisions can be made for delegates with certain physical disabilities or learning difficulties, to enable them to play an active role in first aid provision. Please discuss your needs with our training team who will advise on whether this is possible, and if it is, create a bespoke training plan to accommodate the specific needs of these candidates.
What do you learn on the course?
The emergency first aid at work level 2 course is a one day course that will teach you all the skills, knowledge and techniques you need to offer essential emergency medical treatment. You will learn how to manage illnesses and injuries effectively until the paramedics, or other medical professionals, arrive.
The emergency first aid at work level 2 course covers the most common health and safety incidents you may be faced with as a first aider, including:
- Acting safely, promptly and effectively in an emergency
- Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
- Treating an unconscious casualty (including seizure)
- Wounds and bleeding
- Minor injuries
- Preventing cross infection
- Recording incidents and actions
- The use of available equipment
What does the training cover?
The emergency first aid at work level 2 course has a number of defined learning outcomes. At the end of the course, candidates will be able to:
- Understand their role as a first aider and their responsibilities to the workforce
- Be able to quickly and accurately assess an incident and prioritise their response
- Know how to treat an unresponsive casualty who is breathing normally
- Know how to treat an unresponsive casualty who is not breathing normally
- Know how to help a casualty who is choking
- Know how to treat external bleeding
- Know how to recognise a casualty who is in shock and respond appropriately
- Know how to treat a range of minor injuries
Where is the training held?
To give you the most relevant advice, we usually come to your premises and provide on-site training. However, we can also host the training at one of our nationwide training locations. Just let us know your requirements and we will make the necessary arrangements.
How long does the training last?
The emergency first aid at work level 2 course comprises 6 hours of guided learning, usually delivered in a single day. Open courses generally run from 9am to 4.15pm, however in-house training can be delivered at different times to suit your shift patterns or peak work periods.
Is there an assessment?
In order to qualify for the emergency first aid at work level 2 qualification, candidates must attend all parts of the course and demonstrate competency in a number of first aid procedures. The course is continually assessed throughout the day to ensure appropriate learning and skill development and each candidate must be able to show their understanding of the following first aid procedures:
- The recovery position – for unresponsive casualties who are breathing normally
- Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) – for unresponsive casualties who are not breathing normally
- Treatment of external bleeding for a casualty in shock.
Do we receive a certificate?
Yes, The certificate is a way of demonstrating that you have completed the training and are qualified to provide emergency first aid at work.
How long does the certificate last?
An Emergency First Aid at Work certificate is valid for three years. This certificate is specific to the employee, so will go with you if you change employers during this time.
How often should the training be carried out?
Though there is no specific EFAW refresher course, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends that first aid skills and knowledge be updated and refreshed annually.

Upcoming Emergency First Aid at Work Training Courses
Interested enquire about a course below:, what is the legal requirement for first aid at work.
Under Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981, employers are obliged to provide sufficient equipment and suitably qualified personnel to ensure that anyone injured or falling ill at work can receive the attention they need in a prompt and appropriate manner. The law applies to all workplaces, including those with five or fewer workers, as well as to the self-employed.
There are no hard and fast rules on the levels of appropriate first aid personnel, and to work out the number of first aiders you will need, you must do a first aid needs assessment.
It is important to accurately assess your first aid requirements and make provision as appropriate, as the Health and Safety Executive will prosecute companies who disregard established standards, fail to comply with the law or who put their employees at significant risk due to lack of first aid provision.
Your duty of care
Of course, providing appropriate first aid cover is more than just a legal obligation. If there is an accident at your workplace, and you do not have suitably trained and qualified first aiders available to provide appropriate care and treatment, then there is a risk that serious injuries and illnesses could result in the death or permanent disablement of the person or persons involved. As well as complying with health and safety law, you also have a duty of care to provide a safe workplace for your employees and visitors.
What is the difference between EFAW and FAW qualifications?
Emergency First Aid at Work, or EFAW, covers all the skills necessary to allow a trainee to administer emergency first aid confidently and competently to anybody who requires it in the workplace.
A First Aid at Work (FAW) course covers everything in the EFAW course, plus more in-depth first aid skills for dealing with higher risk environments, such as construction, agriculture, working with heavy machinery, or larger work places where staff may have a number of different medical conditions. Visit our page here.
Both EFAW and FAW courses are recognised by the Health and Safety Executive.
What is a first aid needs assessment?
A first aid needs assessment is an evaluation that determines the first aid provisions needed for an organization’s specific circumstances. The assessment takes into account the degree of hazard in the workplace, unique working environment, and specific hazards requiring special arrangements. It is used to determine how many first aiders are required, what level of qualification they should hold, and whether any additional facilities or equipment needs to be provided.
The number of appointed and trained first aiders that you require for your workplace will depend on a number of factors, including:
- The nature of your business –clerical and retail businesses will need fewer first aiders than manufacturing industries
- The risks present in your workplace –the presence of machinery or chemicals will increase the risks
- The layout of your workplace –large sites or multi-floored buildings will require more first aiders to provide appropriate cover
- The number of employees – the larger your workforce, the more firstaiders you will require
- Medical history– some members of your workforce may need extra first aid provision due to existing medical conditions
- Shift patterns – you need to ensure that there is appropriate cover for all shifts, including cover for holidays
- Workplace incident history – environments where accidents are more common require more first aid cover
While health and safety law does not oblige you to consider customers or visitors to your premises as part of your first aid needs assessment, the Health and Safety Executive strongly recommends that you include them and make appropriate provisions.
Examples of low risk workplaces include retail, offices, schools, universities, churches, care homes, warehouses, bars, beauty salons and community groups (although some areas of schools/universities, such as science labs and wood/metal workshops may fall into the high risk category due to the presence of chemicals of machinery). High risk environments include construction sites, restaurants, factories, agriculture, the motor trade, laboratories, gyms, industrial cleaning and the transport sector.
In certain circumstances, you may not need nominated and trained first aiders. Small companies with low risks and under 25 workers may only need an appointed person to take charge of first aid arrangements. Their duties will be to maintain the first aid kit and to call the emergency services in the event of an accident or injury. Appointed persons do not require first aid training.
However, it is important to understand that an appointed person is the bare minimum of provision for first aid, and that even if anominated and trained first aider is not required by law, it may still be prudent to provide this level of cover for your staff and customers.
A nominated first aider is someone who has been trained to at least the minimum standard in first aid. They must have passed this course – emergency first aid at work level 2 (EFAW) – or the longer 3-day first aid at work level 3 (FAW) course. Your first aid needs assessment will inform you as to what training your nominated first aiders require. The 3-day first aid at work course covers the same basic syllabus as the emergency first aid at work level 2, but also covers first aid procedures for a range of specific illnesses and injuries.
Does my workplace need a first aid assessment?
An employer must conduct a first aid needs assessment in their workplace, but this does not need to be a formal assessment. It is recommended that a written record be kept for reference, but this is not a legal requirement.
If an employer determines that the workplace does not require a fully qualified first aider, then the employer must identify an ‘appointed person’ to take charge of any first aid that needs to be administered to staff.
It is very important that any assessment of first aid requirements is accurate, and appropriate steps to provide the correct training and equipment are taken. If the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) find that health and safety provisions or standards are inadequate, they may be able to prosecute a company for failure to comply.
How many first aiders do you need?
According to Health and Safety Executive guidance, the minimum number of recommended first aiders for your workplace is as follows:
Low risk workplaces
- Fewer than 25 workers – one appointed person
- 25 – 50 workers – one EFAW trained first aider
- More than 50 workers –one FAW trained first aider for every 100 staff (or part thereof)
High risk workplaces
- Fewer than 5 workers – one appointed person
- 5 – 50 workers – one EFAW trained first aider
- More than 50 workers – one FAW trained first aider for every 50 staff (or part thereof)
Please note that these are minimum numbers and extra first aiders may be required to meet the specific workplace circumstances outlined in your first aid needs assessment. Very small companies or individuals, who share a workspace with others, may find it convenient to share first aid provision, however it is important to create a formal written agreement covering such arrangements.
When is an emergency first aider required to be on duty in the workplace?
If a first aid needs assessment determines that the workplace needs an emergency first aider, then at least one emergency first-aider should be on duty at all times. Taking into account factors such as annual leave, illness, working from home.
For more information on FAW and EFAW requirements, read the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guide to health and safety (first-aid) regulations here.
How do you become an emergency first-aider?
You need to attend an Emergency First Aid at Work course which is recognised by the Health and Safety Executive. Once the training is successfully completed, the qualification is valid for three years, after which you need to take a refresher course.
