Its a question we are often asked….
How many first aiders are required for a business!?
The HSE rules state that it is dependent on the risk assessment but there are some simple rules of thumb.
In a normal low risk environment such as a shop, office or library:
Employing less than 50 people you need at least one Appointed Person. An appointed person is a person who is responsible for “taking charge” during a medical emergency. They are the person that calls the ambulance, records the incident and is in charge during the incident. However, the HSE strongly recommend that the appointed person has some first aid training – and who wants to go against the HSE?
Employing 50 to 100 people you need at least one First Aider (HSE Emergency First Aid at Work)… And yes that is at least 1 first aider at ALL TIMES. So in actual fact you probably need 5 or so.
Employing over 100 people you need at least one First Aider (HSE EFAW) per 100 employees. Again, that is at least 1 first aider at ALL TIMES. So in actual fact you probably need 5 or so per 100.
In high risk environments such as warehousing, factories etc:
Employing less than 5 people you need at least one Appointed Person.
Employing 5 to 100 people you need at least one first aider (EFAW or FAW) per 50 employees. The HSE don’t stipulate whether you need EFAW or FAW trained first aiders, their helpful advice is dependant on the risk assessment. If you could be faced with more sever injuries (broken bones, embeded objects, burns etc) then you’ll need FAW first aiders.
Employing over 100 people you need at least one first aider (FAW) per 50 employees.

I know.. you think we are mad. Why would we sell defibrillators to schools which are full of young, fit and energetic people?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) strikes people of all ages, including children as we have all sadly seen in the media of late. For less than £1000 you can give your school, its children, staff and visitors the best chance of surviving a cardiac arrest with rapid access to a lifesaving defibrillator.
No AED = 5% chance of survival… AED within first 5 minutes = 75% chance of survival
Here at Defibrillator Shop we are very passionate about two things. Firstly providing the right defibrillator packages for you. The second being providing the BEST training possible on how to effectivly use your new lifesaving defibrillator…
Thats why we include FREE TRAINING in all our school defib packages, for up to 12 of your teachers, support staff etc! … Anywhere in Mainland UK! Because of this, we will also bring your defib to you on the day of your training – so there is no delivery charge! Call 01244 380 699 for more infomation, or visit www.defibrillatorshop.co.uk

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) states that:
14 In order to protect the health, safety and welfare of people attending a music event, as well as the employees, contractors and subcontractors working at the event, health and safety has to be managed. It is of fundamental importance to appreciate that planning for effective health and safety management should start at the same time as the planning for all other aspects of the proposed event.
The exact requirements of medical cover at your event will depend on a number of factors, for example the type of event: whether you need paramedics for motorsport events, simple first aid cover for a local event or festival medical cover for a mass gathering event for 100,000 revelers. You will need to obtain some advice from an event medical services provider (such as Jigsaw Medical Services) who will be able to assist you with their own experiences in the industry and with the guidance of the HSE event safety guide (purple guide).
The HSE’s ‘Purple Guide’ is a comprehensive reference guide for the use in determining medical cover requirements for events and planning resilience, access, egress and emergency planning. It is used to aid the planning of the smallest local events right through to the large festivals, dance and music concerts.
Jigsaw Medical Services has a wealth of experience in planning and providing cover for events large and small. We are able to provide free advice and a comprehensive planning service as part of our event medical & first aid cover packages. Our team of full-time clinical staff are able to plan for all eventualities and develop a in-house bespoke service from initial planning, right through to De-breifing a reporting.
