A quick first aid response can mean the difference between life and death, or can reduce the severity of an injury. First aid can also help protect your Club, by reducing the impact an accident can have on productivity and the cost of employees taking leave.
Workplaces must take all practical steps to provide first aid facilities under the Health and Safety in Employment Regulations 1995, and to have procedures for dealing with emergencies under the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992 (HSE Act).
