Businesses and organisations are required under the Health and Safety (first aid) Regulations 1981 to supply adequately trained persons to deal with accidents and injuries within the work place. The amount of trained staff depends on the business/organisations risk assessments and the level of risk within the company and number of staff and customers that use the premises.
