First aid is an essential part of health and safety in the workplace because, unfortunately, no matter how many precautions you put in place, accidents are still bound to happen.
Therefore, a first aid needs assessment should ensure that the correct type of first aider is identified and that there is a suitable first aid provision in place should an accident occur.
Our experienced Health & Safety consultants are fully trained in carrying out comprehensive first aid needs assessment and can identify what’s required for your specific business following an on-site visit and analysis.
We will then make recommendations to ensure your business is safe and compliant as well as written record of this process, ensuring that you have a comprehensive first aid needs assessment to refer to when necessary.
What is a First Aid Needs Assessment?
A first aid needs assessment refers to the process of identifying the hazards and potential injuries that may occur in your workplace which will enable you to decide what precautions need to be put into place.
You should always be prepared for an accident in the workplace by having sufficient first aid provisions.
This includes the correct equipment (first aid kit), facilities and personnel so that any injuries can be dealt with quickly and correctly before they become more severe, or even life-threatening.
Not only will it put your mind at ease, but your employees will feel a whole lot safer knowing that there is a trained first aider and the appropriate amenities to deal with an accident at work.
