There’s more than a few reasons to have a first aid kit in the workplace, and complying with the Health & Safety (First-Aid) Regulations of 1981 is just one of them. This regulation ensures that employers provide the right level of facilities, expertise and equipment to ensure that employees can receive immediate attention if they were to fall ill, or to have an accident.
These regulations do not just apply to high risk businesses either, these regulations apply to all businesses. The first aid kit a business needs however, does draw upon a number of different factors – the number of employees, the complexities of the premises, as well as individual risk assessments for the different roles within the business. As you can imagine, working in engineering, manufacturing or warehousing carries more risk than being an accountant.
As a rough guide, a small size first aid kit is required in businesses with less than 25 employees, medium size kit for businesses with less than one hundred per employees, and one large first aid kit for every 100 employees.
